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.
If you structure your website as an extension of your resume, then future
employers or agencies will not think of you as a competing company. For
example, my website is designed that way. It has testimonials and generic
examples. It's located at www.4techwriter.com. When a potential client is
looking for samples, I direct them there. In an interview, I bring real
samples of previous work.
