Thanks to Bruce for getting us ready!

This little history is from Bob Souer's Blog:

Quote:
There was a message board I found out about from a colleague back in the 90’s called The Voiceover CyberStation at VoiceArtist.com. Some very lively conversation and bright correspondents. Had a mostly absent master of the keys, but he did ask for help with a makeover of the site in late 2003, and I offered my hand. He and I had a good deal of correspondence, but the revamping plans died on the vine a couple of times. Then the domain expired and the board went down in late 2004. Nobody could get ahold of the Webmaster, and so many people wrote to me asking what was going on, that I made up this board, VO-BB.COM. I wrote back to folks saying we could give this new venue a try, tell your friends, etc and wow–look what has happened. I honestly don’t have a clue under the sun how people find us, but they do, so it’s growing.


Happy Birthday, everyone!
Life is grand!

In this fabby, glamorous, sacks-o-cash laden yet but all-too-often isolated world of voice overage, the vo-bb stands as a shining beacon, beaconing us ever onward, beyond the mic closet, the vocal booth, the wee huttie. It. Is. Community!

Thank you, Deebs. Truly.

(and yes, I meant to say 'beaconing'. It's late and I just lost 2 hours of edits)

i'd been VO'ing for 20 years - isolated in fly-over country toiling away thinking that there wasn't a soul out there who "got it" ... what i do, i mean. certainly nobody I knew "got it". i actually found this place via amy s. and tommy g. and instantly felt like i wasn't the only sane person on the earth. not to wax on too much ... but this REALLY is a community ... and a community better than most. wether i have met you or not, i consider you friends. you guys get it.

thanks deebs.

wow...five years.

doesn't seem that long since i gratefully jumped over from what was left of the cyberstation.

i have met more friends here and found access to more help and encouragement than i can ever repay...so i pass it on whenever possible (and put something in the "kitty" every year).

thank you, ms. d for giving us the safe place to play (and learn).

Over the past five years, the friendships I have made and my career advancements can all be linked back to the vo-bb.

Thanks Deebs.
