While technical writing might still have the same definition it’s always had, this doesn’t mean that it’s the same. Each year, as technology changes, there are more opportunities to use technical writing in new and innovative ways. The world changes, and so should writing.

This means you need more resources.

Resources for Technical Writing

When you’re ready to learn more about technical writing, you may want to browse these sites. They can help you with instructing new technical writers or the information can simply provide follow-on instruction to established writers.

As we enter a new year, it may also be time to update your existing technical writing bookmarks, RSS feeds or email subscriptions. Here are some ideas:

  • Klariti – This site offers a variety of articles and technical writing resources that can be used to help technical writers at all stages of learning.
  • I’d Rather Be Writing – This blog offers a unique view of the world of writing for technical reasons.
  • Technically Speaking – Paul Pehrson’s Technical Writing Blog – This personal blog by a technical writer is a valuable resource for those who want to find out more about what it’s really like to write.
  • The Technical Writer Blog – We wouldn’t normally suggest a blog that hasn’t been updated since 2009, but the articles and entries still have value.
  • ffeathers – a technical writer’s blog – Another technical writing blog that can help you with finding out more about the industry as well as tools that are available.
  • A Techie Tech Writer Blog – This blog describes itself as “Musings on technical communication, open source software, and related topics” and discusses a variety of issues.
  • I heart technical writing – A variety of simple and easy to use technical writing articles that will help you motivate your staff and to inform.

We also hope that you find our blog useful for technical writers and others in associated careers. Pass these links along, and please include the link to our newsroom (http://www.writingassist.com/newsrsoom) too!
