Those of you with whom I'm connected on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn will have seen my sharing of several posts written in the past few months by my colleague, technical writer John Espirian, on the Espirian blog.
I follow a number of editorial blogs, though I haven't added all of them to my blogroll because I need to keep the list manageable. I've added this one, however, because it offers me something a little different.
I like technology because, when it works, it allows me to run my business more easily, more productively, and more efficiently. I like reading advice about digital editorial tools (such as macros, markup stamps, and Word shortcuts), and I particularly like it when someone helps me to understand things that I'd previously considered beyond my technical know-how.
I'm a non-techie person who likes techie things but is sometimes wary of using them because I don't have the time or inclination to take them on unless someone can spell it out for me in my language! This is the niche that Espirian is filling.
