The ‘Voice’ of My Blog sounds like Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail- okay in my dreams

 Dear Readers,
I’ve been reading tips on how to improve my writing/blogging style, and apparently you have to a ‘voice’ which sets the tone of your blog. Now, while I sat there thinking of what I wished the tone of my blog to sound like, I remembered one of my favourite movies:You’ve Got Mail, and how every time I watch it I relate to Meg Ryan’s character and love the way she writes her emails, and generally expresses her thoughts. That, dear readers is what I’m aiming for-in my mind, at least. When I get comments, I get nearly as excited as when MR gets mail-seriously!

 

I’ve got a comment- I mean email

The other problem I have is of consistency, I can do one post in one voice,say Rebecca  Brandon nee Bloomwood  all girly and lighthearted, straight out of a chick-lit, (again that is it what it sounds like in my mind); and then my next post will I will sound all moody and broody like a vampire of your choosing.

 If I went to a meeting looking like this, would people mistake me for Elle Woods?

Damon: Stefan, you should start blogging, keeping a diary is so 1864
Stefan:I dunno, The Vampire Blogs just doesn’t sound the same

I tend to have a number of not necessarily logically related things to say, but I find them interesting and I hope others do to. I wish my blog would end up being an interactive conversation with its readers so that it sounded like the dialogue of  Before Sunrise/Before Sunset movies with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.
I also tend to blog very late at night, which means I’m not really myself- helps the whole internet alter-ego image, I guess. A friend of mine and reader, says it shows, so I’m going to start editing posts in the clear light of day. 
I also need a volunteer editor, I can’t seem to spot my own mistakes, and the spelling and grammar checker is not working on blogger- very embarrassing to find my blog is covered in typos and worse. I have to first type in Word and then copy paste into blogger, which I find annoying as I like to insert photos and links as I type. It helps the flow of my thoughts. Please share errors, so I can fix them, I won’t be offended, positive criticism is how we learn.
What do you think of my blog’s voice tone?
