In previous Online Writing Insider podcasts, we have alluded to the importance of sounding like a human online. Sounding authentic, and having a distinctive voice, helps you, as a writer, develop an audeince. Sounding human will also prove to your readers that you are not inauthentic (e.g. not a real expert about the subject you’re covering), trying to sell something, or an article spinner.
Listen in to this week’s podcast (How to Sound Like a Human Online) to get some advice from Jason Menayan and myself on creating authentic-sounding online content. We’ve got tips on addressing different categories, ideas on how to get your authentic voice to crawl out from the shadows, and also some important reasons why it is so important to sound like a human online.
We hope you find the podcast to be useful, and we also invite you to send in suggestions for future online writing podcasts! Is there something about writing online that you’re having trouble with? Tell us about it by sending us an email. Our address is podcast (at) hubpages (dot) com.

This is a great podcast. I got many helpful hints. Thanks so much.
You already have a great writing voice, Hyphenbird!! Hahaa!
I’m certainly enjoying these podcasts more and more, it’s the discussion between the two of you that comes across well and all the tips and info too.
Speaking as someone who has tried writing some fluffy nonsense just to test what works, most definitely it is best to write what you are interested in and know alot about, that’s why I try and create art related hubs mainly as that’s my primary topic.
I applaud you both for being cool cats and doing these podcasts…cheers now!
Thanks Wayne! I think pretty much every author has tried fluffy nonsense at some point or another- the key to being successful is to get through that phase, I suppose! Your Hubs now are brilliant and without a doubt genuine.
Another great podcast! Thanks!
There is something you touched on here that I honestly don’t know a lot about… bounce rates. I don’t know what a good bounce rate would be or how to judge a lot of those stats that I see on analytics. Maybe that could be a topic for a future podcast?
That’s a great suggestion, Lisa! We’ll definitely do that!
