A Year Of Blogging In Summary And Season’s Greetings

2010 comes to an end and it’s time to do some introspection of this year’s blogging experience!
I’m blogging about virtualization and VMware for almost two years now, and beginning of this year I made my first debut at VMware Planet v12n and eventually got one of my blog posts cited in the Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts. This is a great opportunity and it gives me and my blog a wider visibility than I would ever imagine. Many thanks go to John Troyer for having me on board.

In June, I was honored to be awarded as a vEXPERT 2010. The VMware vExpert program was created in 2009 to show appreciation for those individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. Many thanks go to the committee.

And finally in August I had the opportunity to work for VMware as a consultant in one of their PSO Teams. This was the icing on top of the cake, a dream come true.

Not to mention that this year I also successfully passed my VCP410 certification. What an exiting year!

So what would be a year of blogging without some blog site summary tables, statistics and charts 😉

Here is my 2010 top 12 posts in term of page views!
