About this Blog
My name is Tom Targos. I am a project management professional (PMP) with a certification in Technical Communications from Gateway Technical College.
I started this blog as a part of course in visual literacy (a graphic design professional development training) at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD).
Since January 2011, I have worked as a communications project manager at the Kenosha Community Foundation. In this job, I provide a full range of writing support to the Foundation including authoring grant proposals and designing media for development/giving programs including brochures, advertising and e-Newsletters. I have implemented a social media marketing campaign, issued press releases, and authored financial reports for the Foundation.
I am also a freelance writer – I have authored seven feature articles on arts, culture and technology for the Southern Lakes Newspapers and the Kenosha News in southeastern Wisconsin.
FOCUS OF THE BLOG
This site is meant as a means to practice – as a means to write about topics using tools, methods and practices employed by technical communicators including:
- grids & spreadsheets
- procedures and proceses
- electronic documents
- photographs / photomanipulations
- and so on.
The blog is also a forum to exhibit and, if possible obtain feedback (hopefully constructive) on my work. My plan is to upload something at least once a month – more frequently when possible.
While this blog is intended to be practice and as an outlet for my work – if it helps me to get work – all the better.
