In that time I've interviewed 12 expert UX writers and content strategists from around the world. They've worked at companies like Google, Spotify, Facebook, Netflix, Uber, and more. And I've tried to share as much wisdom as I can from these interviews - but listening to 12 episodes can take up a huge amount of time. So, today I'm doing something a little special. I've gone through the past year's worth of episodes and I've combined what I think are among the 12 best pieces of advice for UX writers, both beginner and veteran alike. My aim here is to give you practical tools that you can take away, and put into your everyday work. Plus, I know that more people are finding the podcast every day - and it can be a slog to go back through a podcast history! So I'm helping you out - maybe you'll hear something you like and then find that episode and listen to it in full. Either way, I hope this episode gives you something useful. The wisdom comes from: Roy West Sophie Tahran Kathryn Strauss Hillary Black Annie Adams Ryan Farrell Angela Gorden Tamara Hilmes Gordon Macrae Andy Welfle / Michael J Metts Ben Barone-Nugent Shayla Byrd ------------------------------------------------------------------ Looking to upskill?
