I didn’t get to say goodbye too!

They say that if it did not end happily, then it wasn’t the end. Perhaps! This post is dedicated to all those who parted ways before greeting the others, wishing them for success and prosperity. But, I’ve some questions that are still unanswered. Read, and let me know what you think.

Progressive Disclosure: Progressive Learning

The only way we must learn and improve is that we must gradually improve the way we learn. So true it is! Progressive learning can be defined as a structurally-stepped, gradually-increasing-in-levels-of-complexity-in-cognition-and-comprehension procedure. I would be happy to read your views on what I’ve covered in the post.

Well-kneeded Documentation

Good documentation does have some far-fetched benefits. And, the benefits don’t only belong to or cater to, the documentation department. I’ve seen, met, and made friends with folks who belong to other departments, and yet get benefitted with good documentation. Why don’t companies take documentation seriously? Anyway, I hope I’ve covered all possible departments to which the documentation links. Let me know if you know more. We’ll add them to the list!

Editors and Their not-so-easy Work!

Fix problems with the write-up, stick to the standards, create a flow for understanding, keep the language simple, and yet maintain the soul of the writers’ work… it isn’t easy to play the editor. But, don’t we take the profile for granted? That’s exactly what I’ve tried to explore with this post.

Minimalism

Minimalism is one skill, which needs special mention in technical communication. Derived from the works of John M Carroll, the idea of Minimalism is based on structure-based, task-oriented cognitive learning systems. This blog post is about how I see Minimalism contribute to the tech-writing community around me.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective Content

Inspired by the famous book, Seven Signs of Highly Effective People, I have prepared my personal list of seven signs of highly effective content. The writing is reader-centric and may not appeal to the core tech-writing communities, but the work is of my own and is, of course, effective. Read on!

Solopreneurship in Technical Writing

Everyone needs their own formula for creating a work-life balance. Technical Communicators, it seems, are close to creating a successful one. This post tries to find the reasons more and more writers are opting to become one. Read on!

Who Reads Documentation?

Now, everyone thinks that they know more than they don’t know, especially if it is to do with reading manuals. And, nothing wrong with it… provided they are right! This post is a rant; simple. But, it tells you what I feel about being at the receiving end of it.

Playing the Lingual Vigilante

Just as every writer, I too have seen a lot of instances, where words are misspelled or misused and can be misinterpreted. So, what do I do about it? Just like every other writer, I keep a record of it. And, this post is a small record of this blog. Consider the link for what I encountered, and how does it feel to play the lingual vigilante.
