I am not a good blogger (clearly), but that doesn’t mean that I can’t be.
I have a wide range of technical skills and I am a professional writer (for what that’s worth), so this blogging thing is definitely something that I can do. That being said, I have no expectation that this blog/site will make me any money, so this will be more of a “labor of love”.
I would like to build my freelance writing and web development businesses, though.
To further that goal, I am re-investing my time and energy into learning a wider range of professional software (namely, the Adobe Creative Cloud suite) as well as digger deeper into technical and web writing.
I’ve picked up a couple of books to help me along: “Photoshop CS6 – The Missing Manual” by Lesa Snider; and “Letting Go of the Words – Writing Web Content that Works” by Janice (Ginny) Redish. I will be studying and outlining these books as I go through them, as well as putting the lessons I learn into practice. I will post reviews of these books once I finish them.
I’ve landed a couple of website jobs, which is good. However, I’m rusty, hence all of the studying. I’ll be working hard to make sure everything comes together well, both for my benefits as well as my clients’.
I’ll keep you updated. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a lot of work to do!
