I won’t get into the “art” aspects of engineering since the audience is so localized for my work and the strongest endorsement is silence, but…. Like artists I do it because I have to. Ref Dilbert’s “The Knack”

When the market didn’t pay me to do it, I did it anyway.
At it’s best it is a field I would pay to get to do, at it’s worst I cannot be paid enough - but that is never the engineering - it is the superfluous crap that surrounds it.

I want to say “If you CAN be run out of you field by silence or negative comments, then it isn’t your field” but can be a hobby.

Then I remember trying to make a living blogging requires attention and some has to be positive.

So I’ll recommend she read Altucher or Ferris, shrug because I don’t understand how any of them do it, and I’ll shut up.
