SQLAuthority News – 2500 Blog Posts, 2 Million Views per month, 62 Million Total Views

Today, I am very happy as the journey I started almost 6.5 years ago has very important milestone. I have stopped blogging about my milestone for a long time as I believe that was just taking up the space in my blog and was not providing any useful information. However, today is a special day. This is my 2500th blog post and now the next 2500th blog post will come after many years. We also got 2 Million Views per month this year.

When I started this blog, I had no idea that I will be blogging after more than 6 years and I will ever reach to 2500th blog post. It was all just started as my personal bookmark. I was expecting that I will be a single reader of this blog and had no idea for a long time that even other people can read my blog as well. Once the very first comment appeared everything was just new world for me.

As of today, this blog is the most read in USA and second place is India. Thank you readers from all over the world to support me  in spreading the knowledge.

    Congrats! I visit your blog because you always have concise, easy to understand examples, and most of your posts can either be directly applied to my job, or at least get me thinking about some problems a little different.

    Thanks for the hard work!

  • Congratulations on reaching a great milestone. Every time I do a search for something SQL Server related, your blog invariably comes up in the results. That is something in which you should take pride! Your contribution to the SQL Server community cannot be denied.

    I hope to continue reading your blog for many years as I continue to learn about SQL Server.

  • Congratulations Pinal for your greatest success. I have been following for last 3.5 years and gain lots more things about sql server and bookmarked RSS and salute to your dedication.

  • Hi pinal , I have been following your blog since 4 years . I am habituated with this blog in such a way that I will just start my day looking to your blog first in the morning and then continue the other things …my hearty congratulations to your achievement and I wish you all the best . Keep rocking !

  • Many congrats to your great success Pinal. I just follow you last several months and I find your blogs are very entertaintment, useful, and easy to learn. Thank you for your dedication, time, and experiences to others.

  • Congrats Pinal!

    What I like about your website over others is that you break it down into simple examples. It is so much easier to learn the simple version and then add more complexity than it is to jump in and understand a complex example from the start.

    I also like that you provide the info so that we can create our own data and to the queries with you. So many times people show how to do something but you don’t have their data and it makes it harder.

    @ Pinal

    2500 Posts, If I do the Maths right, it take 6 years and almost 8 months to write 2500 Posts, considering one post per day. You have redefined the word “Commitment”.

    I Truly appreciate your effort and time you have put in to help SQL community. I am sure everyone is aware that maintaining this blog is not your full time job, you do this just to help SQL community. But you do this with full commitment despite being a full time employee, full time husband, full time father and full time son.

    You are a great source to refer /great teacher to learn from.

    Keep the spirit alive !!! You simple Rock.

  • Congratulations.
    Carry out this great job.
