From my own blogging experience, posting regularly is a good thing. Mr. Neilsen (who, despite reports to the contrary, is sometimes correct) suggests that quality not quantity is the way to go and, for this blog at least, it is something I’m striving towards.
Nailing a posting schedule is part of this and, as the evidence within demonstrates, I’ve yet to crack that egg. In an effort to force myself I’m going to try flipping that argument around for the time being and just posting whenever something catches my eye. No idea if it’ll make any difference but hey, you never know.
So, with that in mind, here are some interesting sites and articles that have zipped across my radar in the past few weeks:
- Simplest of style guides ~ “Write well, quickly, in the active voice and the present tense.”
- This way to the web, print designers ~ “… come to grips with the fact that, on the Web, design is not a method for implementing narrative, as it is in print, but rather it’s a method for making behaviors possible.”
- Is technical writing for you? ~ “If your goal is to write a novel, this is not the job,”
- Technical Writing podcasts by Harry Miller, a technical editor in Microsoft’s Developer Division User Education
- Adobe entering the “Office” software market? It’s a possibility, but what would it mean for FrameMaker I wonder..
- Better Writing through design from the “must bookmark” website A List Apart.
- Understanding Engineeers ~ “here’s a quick lexicon of what computer programmers generally mean when they’re talking about how hard some problem is” (via)
I hope you find them as interesting as I did.
