I've started a new writing venture, writing "tips" for a new web magazine devoted to the Amazon Web Services space. These tips are short (600 word) explanations of how to do various AWS tasks or how to understand aspects of Amazon's offerings.
Many of the tips seem to be evolving into two part series: an overview and background tip followed by a cookbook style tip. I've taken this approach because I find that many aspects of AWS only make sense if you understand the perspective they are coming from. They also have a fair amount of non-standard terminology that can be a road block until the terms are explained.
So far I've written on AWS registration, creating your first instance, and understanding CloudWatch. Please check out searchaws.com and let me know if you have suggestions for topics. Thanks.
