For Actors & Voice Actors Who Plan to Start A Blog in 2012...7 NooB Blogger Blunders to Avoid  | Lifehack.org | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it

For those of you actors/voice actors who are planning to start your own blogs in 2012, here are some excellent tips on what NOT to do...


(H/t to fellow Scoop.it curator Martin Gysler for yet another excellent find.

 

"Are you thinking of starting a blog in 2012, or making significant changes to your old one?

 

One thing that you should always be 100% clear on is your purpose of writing. Is it to start a personal blog where you don’t really care if you have a total readership of 9 or is it to have a blog that you want to monetize at some point.

 

If you belong to the former camp, then do as you please, and skip this post. If not, read on.

 

1. Making Your Blog All About You

Voiceover Marketing Must Read---Principles of Effective Website/Blog Design: Why we trust beautifully designed websites more... | Inside Voiceover—Cutting-edge Insights + Enlightening, Entertaining News for Voiceover Professionals | Scoop.it

A recent study done on the impact of attractive websites on human behavior found that visitors tend to trust attractive websites more and view them more favorably.

"People judge books by the cover, and other people by their looks....What does that have to do with your blog? Everything!

'As aesthetically orientated humans, we’re psychologically hardwired to trust beautiful people, and the same goes for websites. Our offline behaviour and inclinations translate to our online existence.”—Dr. Brent Coker...'"
