blog laryngitis

I feel like I have lost my blog voice. 

Once upon a time, let’s, for the sake of argument, call it 2003, I had a definite voice.  It was a chatty, friendly sort of tone that referenced personal goings-on without getting into too much detail.  I had shout-outs to friends and family who were helping me out, or doing something cool,  and I used a lot of brackets and asterisks.

Somehow in the time since then I have gotten more formal.  I think that as my time to write got shorter I became more conscious of what I was saying and how I was saying it.  I also discovered some other blogs with similar quirks (shocking! I know!) and that put me off  a bit – I didn’t want to seem like I was copying them.

Anyway, I’m trying to get back to frequently blogging, I think that frequency will bring back the voice I liked and help me ditch the self-consciousness.

Let’s see how that pans out.
