Blog Recap: 2010 in review

This content is 13 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

A couple of days ago, SQL Server MVP, Brent Ozar took a look back at what he’d been posting on his blog in 2010. I thought that was a good idea, so I’m shamelessly stealing his idea to highlight some of the key posts from the last twelve months on this blog. There were many more, technically-focused, ones but these are a good summary of the year’s events:








  • Move along folks, nothing to see here (well, there were a couple of posts, but nothing really worth shouting about)…






  • Tumbleweed (and some geekery) – although there are plenty of posts in the pipeline for next year.

Even though 2010 was a quiet year on the blog (120 posts this year is a record low – especially when considering I averaged almost one a day in 2008!), I did win a Computer Weekly Blog Award, and I have been busy elsewhere:

As for 2011, well, expect this blog to remain one of my main online activities but, as I spend less time working directly with technology and more working on strategic IT issues, the focus is changing.  Indeed, some people think blogging is dead (it’s not) – others say it is now more about content marketing! Whatever the semantics, I’ll be here for a while yet. Thanks to everyone who reads my “stuff” and engages with me – whether it’s as a blog comment, an e-mail or a tweet – and have a happy and prosperous 2011.
