“Hey Mom, you’re a TechComm celebrity!”

(Taken from ElloHollywood blog) Yes, that’s what my son said to me when I discovered something today, and showed it to him. He is a kid who is being raised in a fairly technologically adept home (Mom is a technical communicator, and Dad is an internet developer who specializes in e-learning and LMS programming), so he knows who Adobe is and he knows that if something is on the Internet, it’s the equivalent of what it was like to see one’s own name in the newspaper as a kid, or seeing oneself on TV.

In this case, I discovered this at the bottom of Adobe’s Technical Communications Suite 4 page:

Can you see what I’m referring to? Let’s take a closer look in the Resources section:

Yes, that’s right! My preview of TCS4 is listed as an Adobe RESOURCE!

I’m thrilled and excited about this. It’s no secret that I was happy to see my article included in Adobe’s consolidated list of TCS 4 reviews (mine is fourth in the list) on Adobe’s blog, but to see my preview on the MAIN Tech Comm Suite page just blows my mind.

THANK YOU, ADOBE!

It would certainly explain how suddenly there was a huge surge in hits on this website in the past week. This week, I hit some fairly big milestones (at least in my eyes) with this blog as far as the number of hits it’s received. I hope that anyone reading becomes a regular follower. I do my best to provide both original content as well as curated content that relates to technical communications, e-learning and m-learning, so I hope that anyone new stays tuned, and lets me know how I’m doing, or if there’s anything they’d like to see discussed here.

Thank you one and all for your continued support– more to come soon!
