Share Your Accent

One of my favorite things as a blogger is to watch the vlogs personal videos made by other bloggers. With blogging, it's easy to connect a name or URL with a face and a style of writing. In the back of my mind I always wonder what that person sounds like in real life.

Believe it or not, I'm usually surprised by the sound of each blogger's voice. Seriously, you guys never sound like what I expect you to sound like.

Yesterday, Dara posted a video of her taking an quiz online to determine what type of American accent she has. It was such an interesting video, that I decided that I wanted to do one of my own. It's like a vlog, but without the pressure of actually having to know what you're talking about. Along the way, Dara invited me to host a video link up with her, and from Share Your Accent, was born.

Next Thursday, October 3, we would love for you to stop by Not in Jersey and/or Munchkins and the Military to share your own video. All you need to do is record yourself taking this quiz and post the video on your blog. It would be super amazing if you would share the link up button, so that other bloggers can join in. Think about it, wouldn't you love to know what all these people that you've formed online relationships with, sound like in real life?

You can see Dara's video here, to get an idea of what you're getting yourself into.

Then go here, and record yourself taking the quiz out loud. Maybe include a little intro. Dara had a video about her name.

Finally, come back in a week to share your video and find out what your friends all sound like.

Love, Alex

  4. Sounds fun! I have a horrible voice. Can't believe this is actually how I sound in real life (because I sound so pleasant in my head!). And I read bloggers with certain voices too. Always strange to hear them talking in real life! ;)

  5. How fun!! I might just participate.

  6. Haha .. too fun! Dara is the typical Jersey accent for sure!
