This is my 1500th blog post.
I am very happy. In my earlier 1400th blog post mile stone, I made a promise that I would explain why I have chosen SQLAuthority.com as my blog’s name.
Let me share with you the story about how I came up with the name.
In my earlier career days, I was used to code in ColdFusion programming language, and there was a site called Fusion Authority. I was always referring to it whenever I had to get any latest details of the subject. The name inspired me so I started checking out if there were already a site SQLAuthority.com, but after frequently checking it, the site really did not exist. I wondered who might have already owned the domain, but I saw that this domain was still available for purchase. This way, I came across this domain and decided to use it to start my blog all about SQL.
The main reason why I blog is just to remember what I have learned. These blog entries are truly my journey. This is what I am learning; this is what you can count on me knowing. Quite often I get an email wherein someone wants me to write on a different subject, so I welcome the mail and see if that fits my interests. If it is something new, like a topic about later versions of SQL Server, I would be interested for sure, so I write about the topic suggested to me. I often fail to respond when I have to troubleshoot SQL Server v7 or earlier, because I do not have access to those machines anymore.
This journey is truly remarkable that’s why I still continue to walk on it. I am looking forward to the next two milestones on this blog, which are soon to happen:
- 4th Birthday of the blog
- 20 Millions Views
I got many requests to show my blog statistics, so now I promise that I will do so once either of the two milestones listed above occurs.
The person I must thank is YOU – you who continuously guides me, helps me and encourages me.
This is not only my blog; this is your blog, too and I must congratulate all of you for this great milestone.
