A Year Of Blogging In Summary And Season’s Greetings

2011 comes to an end and it’s time to do some introspection of this year’s blogging experience! That sounds familiar 🙂

In May 2011 I joined VMware in a permanent position. I joined a top notch team of Consultants. La crème de la crème as we say in French.

I was honored to be awarded as a vEXPERT 2011.  That’s two times in a row!

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.

This year I also successfully passed my VCP5 certification. En route to VCAP certifications now and eventually VCDX!

Unfortunately I had to slow down my blogging activities this year. There are priorities in my life at the moment and among them are my sweet baby girl and beloved wife.

Nevertheless what would be a year of blogging without some blog site summary tables, statistics and charts ;)

Here is my 2011 top 10 posts in term of page views only. These are not necessarily my preferred blog posts though. Maybe an idea for another blog post 🙂
