comment How to determine if a freelance writing website is reputable and provides assignments that are worthwhile?
Regarding the tip of the Better Business Bureau - quite honestly they are horrible for any information. All the BBB does is charge a few hundred per year for the privilege of putting an emblem on your website. As far as dispute resolution they are useless because none of it is binding and typically in service professions it's hard to get leverage. Typically you'll find the BBB associated with contractors and blue collar companies - but not white collar workers.

comment Breaking Into Technical Writing - Where to Start (from a programming background)
Thanks very much for the answer! Focusing on API's is something I can't believe I didn't think of before because with all the open source software I use for client projects, I can't even count how many times I've dealt with projects with incomplete/limited documentation so I'm defiantly going to pay more attention to open source projects in terms of being a documentation writer since when it comes to code, my plate is already full.

@Lynn, I rated you a +1 because you read my mind as I also am looking to do a bit of tech journalism, however I decided to keep this question on technical writing because while the journalism side of things interests me, doing more of the documentation writing is aligned with my company and the services I already offer client.
