PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FINDING YOUR BLOGGING VOICE:1. Think of how you sound when you write a snappy facebook status or tweet. That is probably pretty close to your authentic voice.2. If you think of something that sounds good in your head, write it down. We are busy people and are likely forget the exact wording of the thought, or, if you’re like me, the whole thought entirely. That original, spontaneous phrasing will be closest to your own particular voice.3. Analyze your blog roll. Just like you are drawn to friends who are similar to you, you will be drawn to writers who sound like you. If most of the bloggers in your RSS reader have a casual style, don’t try to be overly formal. If you tend to prefer more factual, concise writers, steer clear of slangy wording or it will sound forced.4. Come back to it later and see if you still like what you wrote. If it still sounds good to your inner monologue, keep it.5. Write comfortably. As often as possible, write in a comfy spot, when you are in a good mood. You are more likely to trust your gut if you do.
