Ball of Fun

I found this posted on the blog of a non-native English speaker, so I am not making fun of him/her. I am rolling because h/she is getting many offers to become a tech writer! 

Here’s a sample:
I started getting lots of job offer from big companies for Technical Writer position. Even for senior position, I am getting job offer. I do not know why it all started. Anyway, I wish to listen from you – Who is suitable for this job? Is it better than programming!  
One of the offers posted read this way:
We are having urgent opening for Technical writers in our Office. If you are interested in grabbing this opportunity, revert back with your updated CV.

Tech writer job is not fun after initial money & excitement. 
Reminds me of when I used to joke that I got my master’s degree in journalism after a bachelor’s in English because I was looking for fortune and fame.
