I Hear Your Voice

One of the best things when you blog is you get to virtually meet people from different parts of the world. You listen to their stories and you also share yours and you both come to an understanding of how your lives can be a lot different or a lot similar.

There are bloggers who post their photos so you know exactly how they look like. There are others who would like to maintain their anonymity. And that’s the most interesting part.

They said each writer has his/her own voice. True indeed. As for me, I create characters or personalities in my head according to the voice that I hear. And actually, I also imagine how their voice would be if they would be reading aloud what they have written.

I always do this in the office too. Whenever we have conference calls with our colleagues from the other parts of the world, we only have our conference phone to reach out to them. So we only hear their voices. And according to their voices, I create images in my head.

One of our colleagues, a Venezuelan gentleman stationed somewhere in Africa, has a very sexy voice. Sexy like Antonio Banderas. So I created an image of him in my head. A macho, moreno, latino guy (ha ha ha).

But still that’s a bit different. I literally hear their voices over the phone. Here in blogosphere, I only read people’s thoughts so I have to create not only their images but also their voices.

There’s one male poet who writes poems full of angst and emotions and heartbreaks and whenever I read  his pieces I feel  like Gerard Way’s reading his poems for me.

One female blogger makes me feel back home whenever I read her posts. Her voice sounds so motherly as if I’m listening to a mom reading bed time stories even though her posts are usually about socio-political issues.

And yeah, I have assigned a voice to each and every blogger I know here ha ha.

Ok, is it just me? Am I just weird or does every one else do the same?

But anyway, it would be interesting to know how my voice sounds like to other bloggers too, if they are as weird as me, trying to create voices and images in their heads :p

  1. Para sa ‘kin para kang ano, para kang ate na mukhang tahimik pero opinionated at astig pala. ‘Yung cool na hindi halata sa umpisa. Parang nagkukuwento lang ng personal na karanasan tapos maya-maya may komentaryo na. Tapos may reference pa sa mga libro at mga kanta, nice! Hehe. 🙂

  2. Bias ako kasi narinig ko na yung boses mo. Pero hindi nalalayo yung first impression ko nung nameet kita dito sa blogosphere vs. nung nakita kita: makwento at makulit. Haha! Ang pinagkaiba lang, di ko naimagine na mas matangkad ka sakin. Kala ko magkasingtangkad lang tayo. Ok, magkasinglaki nalang kasi hindi naman ako matangkad talaga. LOL
