Lady checking grocery listEarlier this week, two lists were posted with links to hundreds of resources, and over the next couple of days there will be more.

I thought we'd take a mini breather from all of the link love to talk a little bit about lists and what makes them so attractive.

So, do you like lists?

Let us know by leaving a comment on this article.


Lists

Many of you were pleased to see these lists and I am grateful for your feedback.

What you didn't know however was that David Ciccarelli, CEO of Voices.com, was the mastermind behind these voice acting resources and prepared this series for you to enjoy.

Thank you, David!

Let's take a moment now to talk a bit about lists and their roles in our lives.


By most accounts, people like lists.

We like to itemize, prioritize, and consolidate useful information so that it is easier to access and simpler to understand.

Lists provide a sense of order.

Lists are also handy reminders and keep us in line whether on a mission at the grocery store or monitoring the flight schedule while waiting for the arrival of a loved one at the airport.

It is in human nature to appraise, rank, and record relatively significant morsels of knowledge. We even do this in business.


Want some commercial examples?

Take David Letterman's Top Ten list, the Top 40 (or similar) for popular music, statistics for sports, and the bestsellers list for literature.

Lists are seemingly everywhere and because of that fact they are generally taken for granted.

Sometimes it is good to pause and recognize the ordinary as remarkable.

Just a thought.


Tomorrow, we'll dive into some more lists for marketing online and we'll cap it all off with online resources specific to voice over.

Take care,

Stephanie

P.S. Stick around for Who Got The Gig on Friday ~ I'm very excited to hear about what you've been up to this week, so make sure that you add a comment at that time.

        Hi Stephanie,

        What about the big one...the list of employers of voice-over talent and their contact info?

        I'm half kidding.

        Be well. You and David keep up the good work!
