Hear I Warble…Something New.

I laughed out very loud when I read this prompt, because I have been tinkering around with the voice recorder and I said to myself that WordPress is out to get me πŸ˜‰

I have no particular reason to cringe at my own voice, other than the fact that I think my voice warbles instead of coming out smoother when I sing, but hey, I gotta love what I have.

So WordPress, the simple truth is that I can live with my voice. What would I do if I don’t like it? Nothing. So I have to love it’s dusky tone and squeeze the best out of my juke box.

I have been working on reading my poetry online, but still haven’t gotten round to doing so even though I have a few recordings of my voice.

In family videos, I am either running around serving everyone else, or laughing so loud that I doubt if I am ever caught looking as cool as cucumber.

So for the voice part here goes.

You be the judge.

What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

  1. My voice is babyish and though to me it sounds just fine, when I hear it recorded, it sounds like a baby talking. My husband calls it bird chirping.
    I wouldn’t mind watching a video of mine, I think.

  2. Your voice is strong and mellow. It is melodious and warm. I love it. This is a voice I would listen to on an MP3 in my car, on a drive to the lake for a painting session in winter. Brava, Jacqui. Voice of a star. xo

  3. Hi Jackie,

    Now I know what you sound like! For some reason, I always imagined that your voice would be slightly deeper than that. πŸ˜€

    You have a very pleasant voice, it’s gentle and quite melodious. The sort of clear voice that one would like to hear on an audio-book.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hello Jackie,

    You have a soothing voice, like you received some voice training specifically for audio books and such a voice is perfect for poetry. πŸ™‚

    It’s not that I do not like my voice. I just find it weird listening to myself on a recording. The microphone and other techy effects change my voice so much from what I hear when I talk. I feel the gadgets make my voice deeper.

    Some people that watch my videos on Youtube tell me that I have a β€œfriendly” and β€œhappy” voice. My husband keeps reminding me that he fell in love with my voice because we spoke on the phone before our first meeting. What do you expect from a smitten man? Hehehe But yes, all those feedbacks have made me become more comfortable with listening to my recorded voice.

    It’s great to stumble on your nice blog. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do!

    • Hello Flowers, it’s good to meet you. Thank you very much for your kind words. The funny thing is that I have been telling myself that I have to go for voice training when I am ready to do audio books and now you pay me such a lovely compliment. I think we are naturally harder on ourselves and if your husband fell in love with your voice then you should believe him 😊
