Blog Prompt: Voice Work

I’m on vacation! This is a pre-scheduled blog post for your enjoyment. Let me know what you think!


I repurposed a Birchbox for the sole reason of making a blog prompt box! I shake it up, pick a prompt at random, and write a blog post! You can read the other posts here.

Today’s blog prompt is:

Your blog is about to be recorded into an audiobook. If you could choose anyone — from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson — to narrate your posts, who would it be?

Definitely Tara Strong, she is amazing.

I’ve been aware of voice acting since my good friend Rebecca introduced me to her favourite voice actor (at the time), Naozumi Takahashi. He voiced her favourite character in a game she played (and also introduced me to). She then asked who I liked, and at the time, I loved the Cartoon Network show Teen Titans, so I said Scott Menville, who voiced my favourite character, Robin.

I actually liked all the voices on that show, especially Raven, who was voiced by the aformentioned Tara Strong. When I looked up these voice actors and saw all the other shows they had been on, I realized, the range they all had in changing their voices to fit the character.

I might want Tara to come up with a new voice for my blog, but I’d probably want her to use her Raven voice — it’s the best!

If I didn’t want to go the voice actor route, I’d probably pick someone who would make it funny to listen to, and at the time of writing this, I’m listening to the Spontaneanation podcast so I’d want Paul F. Tompkins to do it! Love him!
