  1. Danielle, I don’t see a way to comment on the STC Notebook page, so I’ll respond to your question (“Why do *you* love technical communication?”) here: I love tech comm because of all the reasons you noted—and because of the people I get to meet, like you.

    1. Either way, I’m glad you commented. You brought up a great point that I forgot–the people! DUH! I agree! I’ve met wonderful people–like yourself–along this journey that are part of the “tribe” (the tribe of tech comm). Great point!

What say you?
