You know what the hardest part about writing technical documentation is? Or really writing anything professionally? It’s polishing the content.
Yeah, actually writing words is easy. I’m doing it half asleep while I lay in bed right now. But is it good? No, not really. The reason?
Well that’s an easy one: I’m not taking the time to polish this crap up before I put it in the front window for the whole world to see. The documentation that I’ve been writing for work though, that needs to not only read well, but look good too. It needs to have lots of pictures and sound right. It needs to be professional, yet carry a hint of personality.
So yeah, it’s hard. It is making me want to write more though. I think I want to make writing in my blog here a daily thing. Even if I do nothing more than make the title the days date, I want to at least make a post. really as more of a record of my life, like a journal.
So, look forward to what I hope to be an every day thing!
