Hard as it is to believe, today, August 5th 2007, marks one year since I started the blog. I admit the first few months were a bit slow when it came to posts, but it’s really taken off since late October of 2006.
The biggest surprise to me is how much I’ve enjoyed blogging. Everyday I try to learn something new. Being able to take what I’ve learned and talk about it on the blog only reinforces my understanding and, I hope, adds some value to you the reader.
I do admit that I tend to be all over the place with my content. I guess it’s a reflection of both my interests and what I have to deal with on a daily basis. As a development team lead, I lend a helping hand to everyone’s projects. So on any given day I’m jumping back and forth between ASP.Net, WinForms, Windows Services, Web Services, AJAX, C#, VB, Java, SQL Server Data Warehousing tools (SSIS, Reporting Services), and Oracle, to name a few.
I think though that even if work didn’t require the broad range it did, I’d probably still be working in all of it. I find it all fascinating, AJAX, WPF, WCF, Linux, Virtualization, SOA, there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to keep track of it all. There’s so much cool technology out there I feel like the proverbial kid in a candy store.
Let me close by saying thanks. Thanks to all of you who visited, sent e-mails, and posted comments. It’s been a great year and I look forward to many more.
