About Me

January 2018 – present

cropped-my-face-for-avatarFor a long time, the blog remained silent until I’ve opened one of its pages about a month ago. Suddenly I felt like I have something to say – and decided to give it a second wind.

I’ve been a technical writer, and a lead of technical writers; API documentation writer; ERP training course writer, and a lead of the course writers group. Now I’m involved in software product development in many roles: product manager, lead analyst, project manager, tester, product consultant – from many aspects of the result and process.

This blog contains mostly personal topics (like travel stories), slightly mixed with professional insights which I’ve decided to write down for review and sharing, primarily with colleagues.

2010-2013

Many thanks to Sarah Maddox, she inspired me to start my own blog. She writes quite involving and professionally. She promotes technical communication and knowledge sharing between professionals.

I started “Lazy student’s blog” primarily to post articles on technical writing and software engineering. Later on, the blog becomes my whole life diary, where I post not only about tech writing, but also on every interesting thing happened to me.

I live in Moscow, Russia, and work as a technical writer at SmartLabs. I enjoy my work and want to share interesting information with people, who are enjoyed with this profession too. My two universities, Tula State University and the Higher School of Economics, were great and educative. I appreciate my professors and supervisors for their hard work. Some of them are true professionals, working selflessly, teaching students to think. I think the latter is the main skill to be acquired from university.

  1. Hallo Katya
    Congratulations on starting your blog. It’s awesome to see another technical writer in the blogosphere! 🙂 I wish I could read Russian so that I could understand most of your posts. Have fun and I hope lots of people leave interesting comments on your blog. I’ll tweet a link to it now!
    Cheers, Sarah

  2. P.S. If you like, you could change the settings in WordPress so that it doesn’t automatically hold all comments for moderation before publishing. I’ve set mine to allow all comments immediately. Occasionally a spam comment gappears but usually the automatic spam trapper stops them. If I see a spam comment I just delete it.

    Happy blogging!
    Sarah
