egocentric social media for voice-over talents (is there any other kind?)

Peter K. O'Connell_aboutme

I’ve mentioned before in this space about how I am usually a late adopter of most social media. Yeah, people think I’m all up in social media but I’m a pauper compared to zombies like Dave Courvoisier and Trish Basanyi, voice talents who are ALL up in social media.

(BTW, I’m not sure what “all up in” means…but awkwardly using urban lingo in unnatural contexts is a new branding ploy I’m testing to drive customers away…I’ll let you know how that goes).

So Sunday I got a ping that a voice talent named Jim Edgar had faved my about.me page.

My first thought was “thank you Jim.” My next thought was “what about.me page?”

To say I’d not spent much time on that social media page would probably be about right. I had written some stuff (more like copied it off my web site) but that was about it.

And by ignoring it, I also neglected to check my about.me dashboard which I now saw had all the nice things other people had said about my fairly barren page. People like Randye Kaye, Fran McClellan,KC Curriden, Christian_Rosselli and GWIII (aka George Washington, III!

But it was another GW, this time George Whittam who woke me about to what we all in VO SHOULD be doing with our about.me pages when I saw his page chalk full of cool info including a sound cloud demo.

Ah, stupid Peter, THAT’S how you manage an about.me page! Well, I’ll learn all this someday.

Have you heard anything about this new thing called Bookface or Facetwit or something?

P.S. (which not only stands for post script but also are the initials of the person I need to speak of for a second) I would be remiss (or remister) if I didn’t again thank Paul Strikwerda for taking the picture I am using as the main cover shot on my about.me page. So remind me to thank him sometime.
