TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am finding that these sites don't provide many real leads, either. The
sites that allow bidding on projects are amazing. People are representing
themselves as technical writers charging $10 an hour. Of course, people are
getting what they pay for but it is difficult to get across to potential
clients that crap is crap, even if it is cheap.
Please don't flame. My thoughts alone.
