In an ongoing effort to help get YOUR expertise out to other people who haven’t learned it yet, I’ve been spewing meaningless advice over the last few weeks….such as write a magazine article for Technet or the Architecture Journal (there are more you could submit articles to….MSDN, Redmond Magazine, etc, etc). In addition to those common ways to get your knowledge out there, I of course recomend blogging (but most of you already blog or have considered it)….so you I recommended speaking at a conference like the Connections conferences. Of course if presenting isn’t your thing, you could hook up with an unconference group of people and simply participate in the conversation (I’ll be hosting one of these at the Exchange Connections Conference in April if your interested)….
So what do you do if you’ve done these things, or you just have too much information to get out? Maybe you’ve considered writing a book? If that has crossed your mind, I’ve talked to several authors about their experiences in the past and Eric Gunnerson sums it up very well in his blog post about book authoring. You should check it out and see if turning yourself into a lowly author makes sense for your work/life balance and your goals in life….
