I won’t be posting my voice on here, I think. I recorded a post yesterday – it was a good one, all about my first ever paid blowjob. I put it up on this blog in “draft” form, and I went to the “preview” page and pressed “listen.” And I thought, “No. Fucking. Way.”
There’s the typical vanity – like many people, when I hear my own voice, I have a slightly negative reaction. “Really? THAT’S how I sound?” But more than that, my reaction was about anonymity. Thus far, even people who know me well could read this and not realize it’s my writing. My voice? Totally identifiable. And what with how Google Voice is ascendant, and Google’s business model is what it is, I don’t doubt that in three or five years, it’ll be possible to do a search of my voice and identify it as mine.
I’m just not ready to take that big a leap toward discover-ability.
