Happy Birthday to Me…
December 19, 2011 4 Comments
Tomorrow marks a year to the day since i started blogging with any kind of regularity. I had started a blog about four or five times, way back in 2009, and you can read those posts if you trawl all the way back through the archive. I started out with the idea i would produce a normal type of blog, more for my own interest than for any real reason. However i only posted about once every 6 months. I certainly did not set out to build a technical blog full of incredibly awesome free content, but best laid plans and all that…
Anyway, producing the posts for this site has been very enjoyable, I’ve learnt a huge amount about SBS that i think i would not otherwise have learnt, and wanting to write good articles has pushed me to look a lot deeper into the workings of SBS than any normal person would otherwise care to look.
It’s been very rewarding to sit and stare at the site stats bar chart, watching it creep up, knowing that content i have put together is actually drawing people to my site, although not as many of you have donated to Room to Read as i would have liked. You know i could charge for this stuff? ;o)
I just wanted to write a quick hello and goodbye to you all if you are reading this, not just hitting a solution through Google and wandering off again.
A special mention of course to all of my friends in the IT Community, and the SBS MVPs who have helped me at every stage, and without whom i would still be just a Help Desk Technician.
Special Special mention to Tim Barrett who gave me my own island, which i am not sure exactly what he was trying to tell me.
Special Special Special mention to Susan Bradley, who needs no introduction.
Special Special Special Special mention to Ollie, Marina, Andy and Jeff for making the UK leg of the SBS MVP Roadshow a huge amount of fun.
Even specialer mention to anyone i haven’t mentioned.
Extra huge special thanks to my Wife who as we can all see, has a lot to put up with.
Let’s hope i never win an award because the acceptance speech would be excruciating.
Thanks for visiting my site, hopefully it has been valuable to you this last year, and hopefully it can continue to be of value for another year to come.
