When I first started writing blog posts on this site, I often created tutorials for specific technologies. At the time it made sense, my clients needed help to do a particular task and I like to share useful information. In recent years, even though the need remains, my posts have shifted focus.
The first is the best! General technology literacy has improved. What does that mean? It’s no longer strange or scary to choose software or change settings. Everyone has a computer in their pocket, technology is ubiquitous.
The second is more nebulous and is comprised of several different parts. The technologies my clients turn to has multiplied as their needs have changed. Further as we all know, technology is constantly being updated. I also think it’s the responsibility of your chosen software company to write documentation, not mine.
It boils down to this: it’s impossible to keep posts of that type accurate and up to date if I want to do any other work to help my clients.
My focus in these blog posts now hopes to help you sort through the noise and learn to find relevant and useful documentation or tutorials, understand it, and apply what you’ve found for general situations. On occasion, I may provide specific tips in my newsletter, which now is on a monthly release schedule.
If you need help detangling a specific technology, please reach out and we’ll figure out what makes sense for your situation. Hopefully, this will create a balance that improves the experience for everyone.
