I want to be a contributing member of society.
Hi! Thanks for stopping by 🤓
I recently learned about Google's Season of Docs, and I'm just plum delighted to simply be able to submit myself for consideration as a prospective Technical Writer when the Application Phase opens on May 29th.
But before I get ahead of myself, I have to point out the big hairy BUT lurking around the corner . . .
I'm not entirely what you would call an established Technical Writer.
I have written plenty of semi-technical support documentation throughout my career, but I get a little nervous reviewing the application form requirements, feeling like I'm teeball batter stepping up to a big league plate.
So, thus begins a series that will document my 'Stuart Smalley' moment . . .
Nothing to be afraid of, right?
I would love to hear from any and all, newbie and veteran, apple and orange, about your personal experience with this initiative!
