Hello!

I am living the Detroit, MI area but grew up in TX. I have been slowly investigating what it might mean to start recording audio for LibriVox and other places over the past 2-3 months.

I finally got my equipment figured out and submitted my "one minute" test recording! I admit that I am bit nervous, but I am looking forward to learning and growing with what looks like a wonderful community. :D

Nice to meet you! It's amazing to me how many people end up in MI for one reason or another.

Thanks Phil! I have come across a few of your videos on YouTube even before I really knew what Libravox is all about. Thank you for the link. I am looking forward to watching the video.

Howdie!
2-3 months of investigations before getting the feet wet? Not bad, man! 👨

With such a serious campaign, you are simply doomed to success - here and everywhere!
So good luck and all the most pleasant! 💥

Thank you for the kind words! I sure hope so. :D My thoroughness can turn into gridlock if I get too caught up on myself. I reached the point where I realized I watched enough YouTube videos and needed to just start recording stuff.
