All technical writers, beginners and the experienced ones, are often looking for useful information on technical writing websites and, especially, on blogs. Corporate and personal blogs give a lot of useful information. It’s news, methods of providing information, examples from their own experience, advice on specific tasks, or overviews of top online help authoring tools.

Different researches show that people are more inclined to trust the experts in their professional field than the peers. That's why, blogs of popular tech communicators gain so much attention. As a rule, the authors of such blogs are highly experienced pros with a number successful publications and books. They have expertise and brilliant careers. You would rather ask them how to shape your technical writer career path, than just a random tech writer.
