CL #5 – The Digital Writing Journey Begins

Share This Post

Today’s Newsletter is brought to you by School of PE.

Since 2004, the School of PE has offered PE exam review courses to help applicants prepare for and pass their chosen NCEES PE exam. Professional engineers teach their classes with industry and teaching experience. Their instructors’ primary objective is to help you pass your PE exam, and because of that, they prepare comprehensive lectures that will cover the topics specified on the NCEES exam.

I want to keep it short today.

I recently signed up for Dickie Bush & Nicolas Cole's cohort-based course, Ship 30 for 30.

Taking the mindset of a prolific digital writer has something I have wanted to do for a long time. I have kept a writing habit that has allowed me to grow the podcast and this newsletter, but I know I can do better.

Over the next 30 days, I will be writing every day online.

I am excited to meet new people and, more importantly, write better so I can continue to serve you with more fantastic content in the future.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. As an engineer, I thought writing would never be a priority. I was wrong!
  2. Writing has become the foundation of everything I do, and I want to improve.
  3. Becoming a prolific digital writer will open doors to help even more people on their career journey.

Over the next 30 days, I plan on writing about productivity, engineering, and career development.

Join me on this adventure—and let me know if you have any questions along the way!

I will write on Linkedin and Twitter, so give me a follow there to follow the journey.

I'm excited to start sharing what I know online.
