"Greetings. I'm new to the field of Tech Writing and I'm attempting to explore all possibilities."
Allo again. This makes my second post, and I hope I've replied in the correct fashion; I'm still finding myself getting used to this forum/list format.
I would like to thank Geoff, Lauren, and Peter for the compliments and inquiries. Now that I know I have reached civilization, I could perhaps better explain myself with Peter's prompting. As my profile suggests, I am a current Undergraduate student who found the "PTW" (Professional and Technical Writing) course, and decided to pursue it by personal preference. Among many jobs I work on a cash crop farm in Michigan doing a wide variety of tasks. To further address your answer Peter, I have several relatives, neighbors, and community members whom farm, besides my own semi-active involvement (between the time I can spare with other jobs and school) and I no doubt stand to inherit/purchase/acquire/work an adequate amount of land (1000-5000 acres by any man's guess). So I'd like to continue to look into the fields of agriculture with the PTW backing, so I may be more actively involved in a core basis of my life, my community, and still retain my original life and roots, preferably here.
So the current task of finding a related sphere stems from a challenge posed to me, along with a mixture of my own curiosity. I appreciate the so far generous and personal responses I have gotten. I have stumbled upon a wealthy resource to extract and contribute plenty too, pending I manage the technological side of it.
