As you may have noticed, I haven’t been doing much technology writing lately.
I’m a startup employee, and startup employees wear many hats. My most familiar hat was “lead technologist”, and I handled the creation of a team and a product. However, A few weeks ago, we finished what we were working on (for the time being), and my role has shifted. Instead of technology work, I now mostly write well-being content for educators and parents.
I can feel the tech skill decay already – I was writing some CSS and have already forgotten my tricks! So, what good is it for me to write about technology, a field I no longer keep up with? Contributing to an already overstuffed sea of blog posts isn’t doing anyone any good. I hope instead to turn this blog into a testing ground for my written content – maybe something like Seth Godin’s blog. He frequently makes short posts about self-development and positivity, which I think I can do.
So, that’s it – no more technology writing, lots of educational writing. I hope that if you know any parents or educators, you’ll send them my way! Our company a lot of good primary research on youth, so we’ll be able to produce valuable content.
One final note – I’ll also be dropping my series on building a startup without doing any work. The product has taken a little bit of a different shape than I thought, and I’d rather not spoil the details at this point. 😉
