In this day of social networking online, it helps to know not only what’s happening, what venues are available, but to sometimes tread carefully, and always be thoughtful.
Peter lists the boards, their links and a personal review of each here, including the vo-bb, yahoo groups voiceover board, voiceoversavvy, voice-overs forum and I also added one to his list, Voicechasers
Peter shares some important ideas about etiquette should anyone participate. (In a perfect world, everyone would observe them, remain professional, and avoid the drama)
I am very attuned to my time in motion, and choose to spend mine wisely. Spending too much time socializing can become a distracting, habit that could drain time better spent on your career, for one. One comment I shared with Peter on his post was:
“I agree that because most of us vo “peeps” work solo, it is nice to have a connection to the outside world with those in our profession. I limit myself to threads of work-related interest, avoid drama and at all opportunities, and stay positive and not too much small talk. After all, there’s always other work to do (professional and personal), and something that’s called, “a life”.”
