Speaking challenge

Let’s take a short break from the tough topics I’ve been posting about lately.

I need to move out of the comfort zone, so I’m going for another challenge.

As many of you already know, I’m not a native English speaker and I speak much worse than I write.
I’d like to improve that. Talking to myself is too easy, but talking to you seems quite challenging to me.

If not else, I hope I’ll make some of you laugh with my so called Italian with Russian accent (at least that’s what Robin said – I’m neither btw, I’m from Slovenia). πŸ˜€

This is a completely unedited version, because this blog needs some fun.

Like I’ve already said, you’re not your diagnosis. You’re still a human with your own identity (no matter if you struggle with this one too).
The same goes for me. I do struggle with CPTSD, but I’m still funny, annoying, creative, and much else of a human.

So, what do you think? Would you like to hear more posts from me or should I stick to writing?
If you find my challenge interesting, I encourage you to do it on your blog too. In your next post or more of them if you’ll find some fun in it.

  1. Nice work, Maja. That is vulnerability in the moment. You did a great job, and your English is just fine. You have also given another personal connection of yourself to your followers. Nice to hear you. Have a great rest of your week. πŸ™‚

  2. Maja, your voice is absolutely adorable. And your English is just fine, as always. A clunky word here and there does not matter, my dear. You do better than you give yourself credit for. So yes – please do more audio blog! Someone’s little pig purred
    You can’t beat that, eh? It must be the season of podcasts. 2 days ago I did my very own little “podcast” – quotes for mine because I ramble a lot and laugh randomly, so mine is very unprofessional haha. I want to do more. In my case it is pure laziness. I don’t want to type or sit at a laptop beyond 5 minutes. Heh. I never answered that e-mail but I hope you’ve been feeling better. Yes, give us more podcasts with that lovely voice.

    • πŸ˜€ this comment with guinea pig really made my day.
      I loved to hear you cursing πŸ˜€ audio puts blogging into another level. Please continue.
      I don’t have enough time to read all the blogs I’d love to on a daily basis and audio really helps here.
      Which plugin do you use for your audio recordings? I’m still researching different options.

      • That makes 2 of us – her comment about the guinea pig made my day too! :). I’m a potty mouth, yes! =) I don’t use any plugin πŸ™‚ I use my cheap shitty MP3 player which has a recording feature. I transfer recording from mp3 player device and save to my desktop. Then I use whatever is built into WordPress for inserting audio. Which might be why my recording is full of pops and clicks. Every time I move the device around it makes popping sound. heh. Downsides. Thanks for your feedback on my “podcast”, I may continue this trend. I truly am sick of computer screens. I’m obsessive about WordPress right now but that may be changing very soon as I’m challenging myself to get away from the screen more. Doing audio recording and only being here for 5 minutes sounds pretty great! Plus I challenge myself to find peace with my voice over time.
