Re-branding: Down the rabbit hole and a new era for this blog

Published by under Executive Presence,Musings

For the past 10 years, I have been writing Kate’s Voice and been honored with a growing, loyal following and recognition by groups such as Global Gurus, as well as many individuals who I respect and admire. I’ve enjoyed the ride.  This year, the decision was made to expand the Vocal Impact coaching practice and create a new website for the company, which has taken some time. Hence, I haven’t posted in a while. We moved the blog, too, though you will notice that it is still here.

“But it’s no use now,” thought poor Alice, “to pretend to be two people! Why, there’s hardly enough of me left to make one respectable person!” —Chapter 1, Down the Rabbit-Hole.

On the new site, the blog’s name is K8sVoice, a catchy title if I do say so myself. Please visit our new website and take a look at our new platform. So, though I shall not pretend to be two people, gradually I will transform this blog into one with a more artistic focus and keep a business focus for the other.

“The best way to explain it is to do it.” —Chapter 3, A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale

There is a new post on K8sVoice focused on authenticity and intention.

“Begin at the beginning,” the King said, very gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” —Chapter 12, Alice’s Evidence

Thanks for following this blog and let the (new) adventure begin!

Finally, a 2015 trend you can really use

The year in review from the standpoint of Google searches tells a lot about what interests people.  Although my own little year in review is based on searches too, I admit that it cannot compete with the search trends that lead to results such as the Kardashians’ lips or pumpkin seed recipes.  No, people find me because they look for information on “How to sing in a bar,” “remedies for tired voice,” “how to get rid of a frog in your voice,” or my current favorite, “pillow screaming methods to permanently damage the voice.”  Obviously, I don’t understand the complexities of search engines since I have no idea how pillow screaming got someone to my site.

However, the analytics on my blog have determined that your favorite post this year was one of my more serious posts, which helps support my belief that I have something to say that matters and that you actually want to hear it.  Therefore, here it is again, the most popular post of 2015 on Kate’s Voice, How to create a strong voice, Part 1:Resonate. Please share the post while humming “Auld Lang Syne” using mask resonance, and have a wonderful holiday season.  I’ll be back in January with a post on how to get the most out of your voice in 2016.

Thanks for following and taking my message to heart.  I do this because I believe that the world would be a much better place if we would all just communicate more effectively, and recent events have demonstrated a big need for improvements.  This holiday season, enjoy the music and the mistletoe and keep talking to each other!
