General task topic

The general task document and information types are new to DITA 1.2. They provide a less strict content model for task-oriented information than was available in DITA 1.0 and 1.1. The general task content model may be preferred over the strict task model by some organizations. It can facilitate the migration of legacy content that does not follow the strict task topic model. The general task information type serves as the base for the strict task and machine-industry task document types, can be used to create new document types, and serves as a base for new structural specializations.

Tom Johnson has written another gem on his blog. What's on my "bucket list" for the next year? Good question. I don't think many of us really think about the way Tom has portrayed it here.  I know some of my "bucket list" items for this year weren't done, but then again, I still gained some new but important experiences and skills that will help me in tech comm. I'm sure I'll set some new goals for the next year with new skill sets and such, but it's hard to say what specifically. Learn a new software app or package? Learn a new computer language (or at least how to read it)?  This is a great article to get one thinking about how to keep things moving in a career!

While many are starting to ask me for blogging advice, I often find myself turning to Darin L. Hammond's ZipMinis blog for advice. This post by Darin is interesting because many of the pointers are things that I try to incorporate when writing my blog. The topics I cover on my blog are niche topics, so I don't expect the traffic proposed in this article--yet. Perhaps in time, and applying some more of these pointers, I'll be able to get those kinds of numbers.  But do read these over--they provide some great insight on the mechanics of writing a good blog and driving up interest.
