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.

Perhaps the view or reaction of coworkers and/or management is dependent
on what your work and its results do for them. If they get no personal
reward--e.g., aid in performing some chore of their own--it's easy to take
your work and your achievements for granted. No body cared whether I won a
new contract or not, unless that contract yhad some effect on thei lives,
even as little as bragging rights, if they had been even indirectly involved
in the accomplishment. - Herm
