I’m not usually big on New Year’s Resolutions but I’m going to break that this year.
The plan to start a blog was something I’d considered for years but it wasn’t until watching Brent Ozar talk about it on some of his recent Office Hours streams that finally convinced me to do so. If you haven’t been watching those videos you need to make the time to do so. They are amazing.
In early December, I had thought about waiting until the beginning of the year to launch this blog so I could configure it to be just how I liked. When I got it to a point where I was content faster than expected, I went live a little bit early. Based on how the last month has been I also decided to set a goal for 2021 and that is to write 100 technical blog posts. If I keep up with making at least two posts a week then 100 gives me room even if something comes up and I miss a few days. Plus, keeping a few blog posts “in the can” will take off some pressure if other priorities come up.
Here’s to a healthy and successful 2021!
