Robert, I've paid my own way to conferences for years. It's not a vacation, it's a way to keep myself up on trends.  It's a way to talk to people one-on-one who I might not get to talk to otherwise and see what they are doing. What works, and what doesn't work. It's a great way to make sure I stay valuable.

I consider it money well spent.  Regardless of first or second career, it's up to me to show the value I bring and show that I can add even more value. It's what gets me that extra at raise time, and what gives me more confidence that I can justify my position with the company. It lets me grow into the expanding role of tech writing instead of worrying that it's going away.

Just my  .02.

The only people I know who go to tech writing conferences do so
because their employer pays their expenses, so basically it's a free
extra vacation.
