Well, it’s been a year since I left Microsoft (8/31/07) to join Kimberly running SQLskills.com – and what a blast it’s been!


From 8/31/07 to 8/31/08 I’ve:



  • Had one front-page article in TechNet Magazine
  • Written two whitepapers
  • Presented at 4 conferences
  • Taught in 5 countries outside the US
  • Taken 39 flights (still 18 more to go in 2008…)
  • Posted 182 blog posts
  • Had more than a million hits on my blog!! (actually way more… 1,305,717)

The last one’s awesome – I love blogging stuff and it’s really cool that so many people read what I write. Thank you all for all your comments and support over the year. I wonder how many of those numbers I can better over the next year?


Cheers!
