About me

My name is Fer. I am a technical writer. This is my soccer shoe ->

Welcome to ferswriteshoe.

I am a Knowledgebase Technical Writer at a security software company, located in San Diego, California. I received my BA in English from the University of Maine, Farmington and my MA in English, Technical Communications degree at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am currently working on my PhD in Technical Communication and Rhetoric at Texas Tech University.

Purpose of this blog
My position gives me considerable flexibility and as a result, I am able to work on several projects that may be of interest to other technical communicators. Generally, as I am also a current Technical Communications graduate student, I have the opportunity to combine the theoretical aspect as I learn new concepts in my courses with the practical as I implement these ideas in the real world. I think that this offers me a unique perspective and I wanted a place where I could share the results of this integration of the theoretical/practical. I also hope that other technical communicators will contribute by sharing their experience and knowledge here as well.

  1. Hi Kristopher,
    I am a regular reader of your incredibly helpful blog and being a technical writer for the last 4 years, it has led me to develop a lot of insight into being one and I have gained a lot of practical knowledge. With my experience, I am thinking of applying to a Masters program in Tech Comm to a US University, preferably for the next year Fall session. I have actually written a detailed email (asking your opinions/suggestions) to your email ID. Please look into it and I hope you will reply whenever you can.

    Have a good day!!
