I'm not a lone writer, but I have found a free way to keep increasing my
knowledge while training budgets are tight. I search the Internet for
tutorials on subjects that interest me (currently PLC programming). Then,
when I have a little time, I read them and work through examples. Opening
drawings in our 3D CAD software can take a couple of minutes, so while I'm
waiting, I read from a tutorial. I also use time at the end of the day or
before lunch, those 10-15 minutes I get when I've completed a project (or
portion thereof), and there's not enough time to start something else.

Those of you in smaller shops, or lone writers, how do
you keep current with the tech writing industry?

How do you advance your skills and also your career,
especially in this time of reduced (or absent)
training budgets?
