Monday, February 13 2012 @ 9:20 AM, By Parth Mukherjee

The Bloggernama will be our monthly compilation of the blogs we read and liked. If you want to have your / any other blog listed here, email us at Writers, enjoy reading!

Here’s a compilation of blogs we read and liked in January 2012:

A Lifetime of Reading Versus a Lifetime of Writing – how many of us read more than we write?

Do Technical Writers Do Anything Important – interesting question and nice examples (wish this was a roundtable discussion topic)

Effectively presenting information, no matter what you’re writing – useful advice!

Getting a Little Respect for Technical Writing – how to improve perception of technical writers’ contributions.

Take a cue from the trades when starting your business – useful advice for technical writers planning to start out on their own.

The FrameMaker Myth-busting Series – scroll down for links to all blogs written till now

The guilty pleasure of writing policy and procedure documents – do not miss the funny video inset.

The “Home Depot Model” of Findability, or, Social Search

The Maker generation, hacking and why user documentation suddenly becomes important – interesting links read to further reading about the “Maker” generation.

To cap or not to cap, that is the question – interesting points on usage of Styles.

Web Analytics for Content Planning – Data can be really helpful!

Writing with bullets, a bit too much? – how to use and misuse bullets! (Not the .45 kind!)

    It would be good if there were a category so that you can see Jan / Feb / Mar etc listed rather than having to trawl through all of the blogs for each month to find these. Hope that’s clear.

      Peter, thanks for the feedback. We will (very shortly) launch a completely re-branded blog site and will include the Bloggernama as a recurring category featuring in a drop-down list.

      Also, will hope to see you feature as a “Guest Blogger of the Month” very soon!
