I am a technical communicator.
“So what is it, exactly, that you do?” I hear this a lot from people, even people that know me for many years.
It used to be easier to explain: “You know, those manuals that come with products, or software, you know, the ones nobody ever reads? Well, I write them.”
Except, I don’t anymore. My profession has become something transcendental, mysterious if not actually mystical. It is a great way to learn all kinds of new skills, and to mix three things that are my passion: Communication, Culture and Technology.
It is a great profession, and a great time to be in this profession. And that’s what this blog is about.
