Blogging for four years!

I find it absolutely amazing that I’ve been writing this blog for four years. My first ever post My 5 pieces of advice for new DBAs was published way back in November 2013.

I started out writing one post per month, just on areas that I was working on or topics that I found interesting. Over the last year I ramped that up to one technical post a week, one editorial, and on Fridays a post linking to articles I’d been reading. The difference that’s made has been phenomenal!

(hits on my blog by year)

Ok, obviously just publishing more posts a week wouldn’t cause that increase in hits. 2017 has been a really exciting year for me as I found a topic that I really enjoy writing about and have started regularly presenting session about it (give you three guesses what that topic is 🙂 )

I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished this year and 2018 looks to be even more exciting. I’m working on a couple of new sessions and there’s a load of great events coming up.

It still blows my mind that when I started out presenting it was just to see if I could do it (just like starting this blog was) and now I’m working on different presenting techniques to deliver the best session that I can.

Hope you all had an amazing 2017, bring 2018 on!

Thank you for reading!
