My 100th Post – A Time to Reflect
When I first started blogging two years ago just about every blogger out there spent their time explaining blogging itself so I promised myself not to follow suit since it was a well worn out topic. I saw blogging as a way of archiving and sharing my interactions with key users in the measurement and automation world. The idea of blogging didn’t seem revolutionary but rather evolutionary in the development of the internet.
In the early days of my posting, I focused on emerging technologies and what they were all about. I tried to share links and tutorial information on newer topics. This gained a small following primarily because most of the information is already on the web and only a few mouse clicks away. After the first year, I shifted strategy and focused on the people behind the technologies and found a whole new world opening up. About that time podcasting came into mainstream usage and I noticed that the podcasts I found most interesting were interviews with people working on familiar products or services, but those who you never heard from. For example, one always hears from Steve Jobs at Apple, but I really want to hear from the team who designed the Ipod.
For the past 100 posts, I received numerous emails and comments regarding the blog. I want to thank those who took time to not only read the blog, but also send in a word as well. Have a Happy Holiday season.
