I started this blog 3 years ago today.
I am still interested in the same concerns, so this blog will continue “advocating plain language, clear design, sensitivity to audience concerns, and civility”.
I will be semi-retired in 2009, so I may have more time to devote to blogging. But I will be more concerned with plain language in its applications for a general audience. I have worked mainly with legal writers in past, but that is the retired part of my work. Which leaves me talking to government, business, and other writers about plain language.
Social networking has blossomed in these three years and I have followed my friends in using various services. Now I am trying to organize my practices in what seems to me a rational use of the newer services.
I will tweet to Twitter the interesting links and connections I find. So that’s @CherylStephens on Twitter.
I will share my news, photos, and art with friends on Facebook. Friend me as Cheryl Stephens on Facebook.
I am LinkedIn but I don’t find much use for that service.
I am using Blogger to share what I have learned and am still learning about communication issues. Building Rapport is at http://www.plainlanguage.com/blog/
I hang with the artsy-crafty Glitter Sisters at Violette’s blog: violette.ca
And I participate in a Yahoo Group listserve on plain language which requires you to join PLAIN to participate in that conversation.
So I’ll see you around, eh?
