But it doesn’t stop here, my blog has had some minor success, when I started it, obviously visitors numbers were
I recently saw an an announcement on SQLSERVERPEDIA, that they were to hold a blogger awards to coincide with the PASS summit. The fact I’m not attending the PASS summit, even though I would love too meant I didn’t pay as much attention to these awards, I saw post from various well-known bloggers, promoting their nomination but I have been busy and not had time to catch up on my reading, until today I saw a post today by Grant Fritchley that mentioned he was up for nomination for his post on Powershell, I liked Grant’s post on powershell, so I thought I would pop along to the sqlserverpedia.com website, have a look at the nominations and probably, in all likelihood vote for Grant. I clicked the link, the page loaded and the first entry I saw was a post called “Policy Based Management - Disable Autoclose” I thought to myself, I wrote a post with a similar title not so long ago, I then looked at the bio and the author and I was shocked to find that it was actually my post up for nomination. I’m sorry Grant I didn’t vote for you in that category, although I’m way behind you in the count so I don’t think I will prove much competition for you.
Having shamelessly voted for myself in “Automation and Management” I then, after I got over the initial excitement of being nominated, thought I would check out some of the other categories, I did vote for Grant in the “Series” category though for his series “An Introduction to Indexes” series I looked at the the “New to SqlServerPedia” category and to my shock and amazement I found that I was nominated there too!!! Again though I’m lagging way behind the rest of field , not that that bother me at all, I wasn’t even expecting a nomination, I have been shocked to have been nominated, not once but twice!
That said, people are on the campaign trail and I don’t want to lose by a country mile so if you like to vote for me or my post then you can do so:
New to SqlServerPedia
Automation and Management
I’ll be honest, these nominations have been a fantastic way for to round off my first year blogging properly and my one hundredth post, so standby for the next one hundred.
