All knowledge workers are enabled by tools, software and hacks. Without realizing it enough. Yes, it is not rocket science, still so many people struggle with accomplishing basic tasks. While content, content strategy, publishing, work flows, et al are all quite important, the tools, tips and tricks, usability, lifehacks, etc. are equally important.
Most of the times, this is what I share on this blog–the tools and tricks that I use. The posts are about accomplishing tasks, usage of tools, improving usability, reviewing features, customizing software for better, time management, lifehacks, or even about platforms and hardware! And all of this counts towards a technical writers’ productivity, especially because we techcomm professionals spend far less time actually writing, than we think we do. Collaboration and communication, information gathering, getting our hands dirty, analysis, information architecture, etc. take up more time than we are aware of! And all these activities are efficient only with a good backing of tools.
On some days, I talk about the soft issues, discuss strategy, share my thoughts on customer experience, and on rare days I just ramble!
In short, this blog is not restricted to tools, but is about ways for writers and techcomm professionals to get their daily work done. And about community building.
What I post here are my individual opinions, in my personal capacity. The thoughts may not match with those of my current (Adobe Systems) or past employers. My company allows its employees to get involved in the community and be active on social media.
