Ya know, I had my annual review yesterday and like last year, it went very
well. I am the only tech writer and I write for one department. Now it is
likely that there will openings for more writers in the near future. But...
at this point, people can look at a certain document and know that it is
mine or not.

When it comes to updates, revisions, corrections, etc., it is a no-brainer
who to talk to. I am not so thin skinned that I curl up in a fetal position
if I don't receive recognition for writing the latest Holy Grail of
procedures. Sure I like it when someone says something positive, but I do
not rely not it.

I look at myself as being a critical cog in the wheel or a part of a team.
When I complete a project I am content with the personal satisfaction of a
job well done. And going back to my review, my bonus and raise reflect how
well I do my job.
