    Can someone please explain what voice is?

    My SEO thing keeps telling me I use too much passive voice when I write. How does passive voice differ from active?

    In a nutshell:

    Active: the thing does the stuff
    Passive: the stuff is done by the thing

    Basically, if yoast is whinging, ask it to highlight the sentences and then think about other more lively ways to say things.
