SQL SERVER – 1500 Posts – A MileStone – Origin of Blog Name Revealed

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:

  1. 4th Birthday of the blog
  2. 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.

    Pinal, congrats, of course, and cool story of the connection of your blog name with FusionAuthority. Your former connection with CF just helps further explain the nature of how/why you share stuff as you do. It’s in the CF community’s DNA. :-)

    Thanks as always for all that you do share on your journey! :-) We all benefit tremendously. Keep up the great work.
