Actor Blogs

* Bookmark and Share


For those of you needing a little bit of inspiration and a feeling of solidarity, I’d like to suggest reading the blogs of fellow actors and artists. There are thousands of performers blogging about their audition, show and “day-job” adventures that are heart-breaking, moving and downright hilarious. Sometimes when I need a little “pick-me-up“ I’ll go online and do a search for actor blogs (either through Google, various blog catalogs, or through Blogger or TypePad’s member directories.) I’ll discover how someone just scored an agent and learn what their tactics were. I’ll read about audition horror stories and how the actor persevered against all odds. Sometimes there will be an actor who is depressed over a lost role and I find that fellow actors have left encouraging comments to get them back in the game.

First off, here's mine:

Sometimes, just knowing that other people are out there having the same triumphs and struggles is very comforting. So, I welcome you to do a search of your own to find like-minded actors who can give you a little bit of inspiration. Who knows, maybe you can start a little blog of your own? (... and then send it to me so I can post a link!)
