authentic voice

Writing in an authentic voice has become the catch cry of the times, but what does it actually mean? Your authentic voice is how you write online.

Why do I need an authentic voice?

Having an authentic voice that doesn't change from post to post can bring more readers to you. As people discover your writing, and decide if they relate to it, they come back for more, and share your posts with others. It can also help you write more, because you know the tone you use when writing, and don't have to stop to think about how you write.

How do I find an authentic voice?

Write. And don't try to be something you're not. Write as you, the same way you talk, because it's much easier to keep the story straight in your head if you're just being you.
