How To Use Content To Find Your Voice

What Is Your Voice?

Your voice is how you talk, think, and write—how you express yourself through language. It’s not necessarily something that’s “in” your head; it’s also a product of your experiences and the people who have influenced you throughout your life.

As a content creator, I’m always trying to find new ways to have moments of reflection as well as discover new ways to express the thoughts in my head.  

If you’re on a journey of self-discovery, have you ever considered using content to find your voice?

Here are 6 easy ways you can use content  to help you find your voice: 

  1. Write a blog post about something you care about.
  2. Write a guest post on another site that features a similar topic or audience as yours.
  3. Write an email newsletter for your audience around topics important to you.
  4. Take photos and share why they matter to you and why your audience should care about these images as well. 
  5. Create a video tutorial explaining how something works. 
  6. Start a book club and create content about the books you’re reading. 

When creating content, here are 10 key tips to keep in mind: 

  1. Create content about something that truly interests you. If it doesn’t interest you, then no one else will be interested either! 
  2. Don’t try too hard. The best content comes from a place of authenticity, so just be yourself and let the words flow! 
  3. Don’t worry about being perfect! The only way to improve is through practice…and mistakes are the best way to learn how to do something better!  
  4. Be consistent with your schedule; if people know when they can expect an update from you, then they’ll come back again and again for more great stuff from the same source!  
  5. Make sure that everything aligns with your personal brand’s overall vision; this will help ensure that everything stays consistent across all platforms.  
  6. Speak to their pain points and challenges. You are NEVER alone with the struggles or challenges you encounter in life.   
  7. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! There’s always something new to learn. Don’t be afraid to get help when creating content that is meaningful to you.   
  8. No one knows everything, so don’t pretend like you do! People don’t want perfection; they crave real truth.    
  9. Use words that express how you really feel about something, rather than just saying what everyone else is saying about it. 
  10. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things; this will help expand the scope of what’s possible with your voice!  

If you’re not already using content to find your voice, there’s no time like the present. And if you’ve tried it in the past and found it lacking, don’t give up! The key is to focus on creating content that truly represents who you are and what you care about. The more authentic you are, the easier it will be for others to be authentic with you. And when people feel like they know who you are and what makes you tick? Well, then they’ll be more likely to trust what comes out of your mouth. 

Share your truth and be the change this world needs!
