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.
Depends on who and where you are. For an experienced tech writer with
varied skills and good recommendations in the metro DC area, $45 per
hour on contract is "small bucks." But for a newbie in Syracuse, that
might be an excellent offer. YMMV
