SQLAuthority News – Milestone of 1300th Post and A Few Updates

Today is my 1300th blog post and I realize that my blog has been quite running such a long journey. I have been writing for a lengthy time on this tech blog. Today I would like to go back and briefly recall the posts that were part of my blog’s history. Read all list of all my blog posts here.

This blog only started as a list of personal bookmarks. I used to just write down scripts on the blog for my personal use. I was the one who wrote many scripts here for the servers that I was maintaining to keep them polished. I have included many links in my first blog posts which I view as just a collection of bookmarks on my very own blog; no intentions of publishing other contents besides the scripts, at all. Gradually, I realized that people read my blog and follow the advices which were supposedly meant only for me. I tried to write a code and a script which are generic in nature, so anyone can just use it right away.

Nothing is perfect. When I was writing the last 1299 posts (and having 14 Million+ views), I have made a few mistakes and tweaks that I thoughtfully accepted. These are corrections that were pointed out by many kind souls and readers like you, which have helped me develop wonderful blogging experiences. I am very glad that I have this blog wherein I can express myself. After all, I would have not reached where I am today if I have kept myself worried in terms of expressing my knowledge and understanding SQL Server. I am happy that many of you appreciated my efforts and supported me all the way, which also helped me achieve where I am now. I promise to learn more about this fascinating subject and, of course, continue to share whatever I will learn to my dear readers.

Again, I really thank YOU for reading this blog and supporting the SQL community.

    I know only people like you with full dedication and commitment can achieve these mile stones.

    I still wonder HOW DO YOU GET THIS MUCH TIME ? There must be some secret.

    * Replying to 100’s of questions people ask,
    * Maintaining and moderating a huge blog.
    * Presenting Seminars, talks.
    * Attending International Seminars.
    * Giving Online Classes.
    ** Learning new stuff every day
    *Office Work.
    *And time for Personal Life….

    WOW… So much to learn from you.

  • Congratulations Pinal on achieving this milestone. It really shows your passion and dedication to reach out and share with the sql server community. It takes a lot of self motivation to work on new ideas and also take the time to present and share. I guess you have mastered the art of balancing your time between the blog,work,training and family.
