On the phone this morning, talking about blogs (what else? well, plenty, actually), Halley said "it's all about voice."

Still working on my voice, I think. Personal, professional, exuberant, cautious, wide-ranging, focused...where's the right balance? What's a not-yet-tenured professor to do? ;-)


Yes, I am increasingly thinking that bloggin is all about voice. Finding that voice- the one that is both interesting and honest, is the hard part. It's very easy to get distracted by other people's voices, especially when you like their blog, and try to be like that. Also, the awareness of audience gets in the way (well, I find this, at any rate.) You moderate the voice with your audience in mind.

Spooky thing about voice is how easily it can turn into persona. Glad to have met you Elizabeth. I'll be back for more.
