Sometimes, the answer was looking at you in the mirror.
For years I have had numerous people tell me that I should look into doing voiceover work.
Well, after seeing some postings online for making money doing just that, I'm gonna do it.
I used my tax return to, among other things, purchase the tools necessary to start doing voiceover work from my house. These tools are essentially, a professional condenser-type mic, an audio interface to connect to my laptop, and the necessary software to record and edit my voice (Pro Tools Essentials).
I'm not at all going to discontinue my attempts to make it as a web designer, but if there's even a slim chance I can make some reasonable money doing something I'm already very capable of doing well, that I also enjoy, then I owe it to myself to give it a shot.
Also, I'm writing this blog from a desktop blog program called Blogo. We'll see how well this works.
Oh, and I did get an xbox360.
