I really never thought that I would be writing this post – honestly! After 1900th post and almost 5 years, this has been a journey and lots of learning. I get to write a 100 “mile stone” post 3-4 times a year, so I am happy to be writing this one. I am eagerly looking forward to my 2000th blog post as well.
Let us play today a very simple game – frequently asked questions and answers. These questions were prepared by my lovely wife Nupur Dave.
Why did you start this blog?
It began just as a bookmark for myself. I tried to collect all the most frequently used scripts at one place and that is how this blog started.
What is the original name of SQLAuthority.com?
I think for this answer you need to read my earlier blog post – Origin of Blog Name Revealed. This post was written almost a year ago.
What is one thing you want to highlight in the last 100 posts?
There are two things – I am now a published author and have two books with my contribution.
SQL Wait Stats – A book on the unique subject of Wait Types and Queues [Amazon]
SQL Server Programming – A book explaining various SQL Server Concepts in easy to read language [Amazon]
Who is Rick Morelan?
Rick is a great SQL enthusiast. He has co-authored two books with me and during the course I learned a lot of things from him. He has the talent to explain any complex idea in the simplest way. Writing a book with him was a real pleasure and an excellent learning experience.
What are your plans for the next 100 blog posts?
Well, the first of November is my blog’s anniversary. We are going to have a fifth anniversary celebration of this blog. I am thinking something big – something really big for all of us. I am not sure yet, but all of the readers will have a blast on the anniversary of this blog.
What is the next big surprise?
Watch the blog post of Nov 1, 2011
