Have I missed the party?

Published 08 May 09 11:58 AM | MartinBell

As a SQL Server MVP since 2003 I have been heavily involved in the UK SQL Server community, but I only realised after the last SQLBits Community Conference in Manchester, that I was the only member of the organising committee not to have a blog or website!

I've been wary of blogging; my main excuse not to do it myself was thinking I would not have time to produce something worthwhile. I've seen many bloggers start off enthusiastically enough but then the postings wither away to nothing. Feel free to give me a prompt if you think that the blog has gone quiet!

I have posted before on the Technet Industry Insiders blog, but I have not really had anywhere where I can post my own slide decks and the follow up questions and ideas that we get from User Group Meetings etc.

I intend to post both technical content as well as community information and may be some of my own views/take on things although I don’t want to turn into a grumpy old man; we already have one Grumpy Old DBA and that’s more than enough!
