    My name is Rob Layton and trying to become a sportscaster, but having no success as of yet. I need some advice and maybe a mentor to help me out. I want someone to look at my blogs and tell me how to make it better. Plus maybe some advice on making podcasts and videos. Here are my links: Twitter.com/RLaytonSports rlaytonsports1.wordpress.com sportsrants.com/robreport

    OK, that's better. The other one hadn't been updated since 2014.

    If you're an aspiring broadcaster, shouldn't you be posting video or audio rather or in addition to writing a blog?

    Goddamnit, everyone is being too nice to Rob.

    Noobie alert!

    He's been on here almost 24 hours, and no one has said: fetch me a beer, Noob!

    We are slipping around here. Quit slacking everyone. Unleash the hounds!!!

    Someone who knows more about video can clean up what I am about to say.

    I think you need to realign your computer camera, or switch to something else, so you are straight on in the frame, as you would be on TV.

    I have the same problem when I teleconference, but it's not as much of an issue, nor is there a whole lot I can do about it. But if I were recording those sessions for others to view later, I would try to improve it.

    Also, I think you need to add some "up and down" to your voice. I have the same issue there, too. It takes work to improve that.
