A Fresh Start

Disposable mask

2020 has been an awfully eventful year. I’ve been fortunate enough to work from home since March, and we’ve essentially been hiding in our home since then. I bought a new car in September and haven’t yet put any gas in the tank. (It’s a Prius Prime, but come on—it still shows the tank as full!) I’m politically active, but in the last few weeks I’ve spent more time sleeping and less doom-scrolling.

Over the last two years I served back-to-back terms as president of STC New England, and my blogging energy went into announcements on the chapter website. Now I’ve handed over the reins and ascended to the post of immediate past president. At the same time I’ve moved this blog to WordPress. So it seems like a good time to start blogging for myself again.

At this point I’m not running for Society offices and I’m not looking for a new job. I don’t know if my new circumstances will allow me to blog more, but if I do, at least my posts won’t be quite so focused on STC and self promotional.

I am a retired technical communicator, a Fellow of the Society for Technical Communication (STC), a former STC board member, and chair of the first STC Certification Commission. I occasionally blog about these and other topics.
