Heather, our technical writer intern has kindly sent me over an update.
I feel it’s important to keep readers updated on how it’s going, and so Heather can share what experiences she’s had in our intern program.
Heather’s words :
“Heather here again to give you all an update on what’s been happening during the last few weeks. Lots has been going on behind the scenes as Don and Danny ready the first few articles for publishing on the site.
As well as researching and writing the articles, there are lots of other elements to consider before piece is ready to post, such as its layout and any graphics that will be used to illustrate the points raised in the article.
In addition to first drafts, there are several rounds of editing whereby words, sentences, and even paragraphs are tweaked or rearranged so that we can publish what we all consider to be a high quality article.
I like to have a number of articles in various stages of completion so that I am actively working on a project at all times. This can mean juggling second and third drafts with research for new articles while narrowing down layout and graphic choices for a third piece!
The first article in the series will be posted on the blog soon, enabling you to get a flavour of what the project is ultimately about and the direction in which we’re taking it. This is an exciting time for everyone involved in the project and I know that I speak for Don and Danny when I say that we are very much looking forward to receiving feedback from all of the great people who’ve supported this project from its inception to the current day.
The support that we’ve received so far has been overwhelming and I would like to personally thank each and every person who has left a ‘like’ or a comment on either Don’s blog or my own. Your words of encouragement have not gone unnoticed and we’re grateful and happy beyond words to have so many people supporting us with this project.
Once again, I hope you all enjoy the articles we’ve put together as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them 🙂“
Heather is and continues to be marvellous to work with, dedicated, thorough and very personable. Danny and I are very pleased to have her as part of the team.
We will be publishing her second article very today, or tomorrow, watch this space …

Oh thank God you posted a picture of a ball pen!! I am one of the few dinosaurs who still write with fountain pens, and was planning to photograph them, and to write a post about them. Now, don’t you dare!!! LOL!
Rajiv, I thought you’re the photography guy and I’d write… Well, no worries… Do it… 😀
