Top Virtualization Blogs – 2015

vote_button

The time has come again to vote for the Top VMware & Virtualization Blogs of 2015. I was in the middle of a transition to my current role at Coho Data during the voting in 2014, so I didn’t rank last year, but this blog has placed twice in the Top 50 before. I have been sharing quite a few details on Coho this year, so I hope that warrants a vote!

I think that I was steadier with the delivery of content this year, versus last year, by blogging more frequently and with shorter articles that I hope were valuable to the readers. I, of course, still like to do an involved, in-depth blog here and there. I continue to work on the cadence and quality of my content. Thanks for your continued readership!

I would also like to mention the blog of my colleague, Forbes Guthrie (vReference), who is on the list as well. You may have seen his posts in my Twitter feed as well as my front page RSS.

Thanks for your vote!

VMware vExpert 2015

vexpert_logo

I am so happy to announce that I have again been honored as a vExpert for 2015. This is my 5th year as a vExpert! Many thanks to Corey Romero and the rest of the VMware Social Media & Community Team that helped determine the inductees this year. They run a great program and the process this year was quick and smooth.

At Coho Data, we have 2 vExperts so far. I’m challenging Patrick Benson and some of our other SEs to go for this honor next year. Their blogging and community efforts should be worthy of recognition. Forbes Guthrie, also made the list this year, along with me (no brainer!). I can assure you that the two of us, and the rest of our team our honored to be part of this exclusive company.

That’s it for now!

Well, the time has come again to vote for the Top VMware & Virtualization Blogs of 2013. I was lucky enough to be included last year, and this blog was fortunate enough to place in the Top 50 (#39, to be exact).

I think that I was steadier with the delivery of content this year, versus last year, by blogging more frequently and with shorter articles that I hope were valuable to the readers. I, of course, still like to do an involved, in-depth blog here and there. I continue to work on the cadence and quality of my content. Thanks for your continued readership!

I would also like to mention the blogs of my colleagues who are on the list as well. You may have seen their posts in my Twitter feed as well as my front page RSS:

VMware vExpert 2012

vexpert_logoI am again pleased to annouce my renewed induction into the exclusive group that is the vExperts! Many thanks to John Troyer & Alex Maier and all of the VMware staff that helped determine the inductees for 2012.

Now that I am working at a vendor, NetApp, it is all the more difficult to make it into this exclusive group of experts. It just means I need to continue to elevate my game to continue helping those in the field and spread the word about VMware and its growing catalog of offerings.

I am also pleased to annouce that my teammates, Chris Gebhardt and Nick Howell made the list again this year along with me. I can assure you that the three of us, and the rest of our team have very exciting plans in store for VMworld this year. Stay tuned here for more as we slowly reveal our plans!

It has been a transitional year for me thus far, especially with an overseas move for myself and my family as well as the ins and outs of starting a new role with a new company. I am enjoying the transition so far, but still look forward to normalcy as I find my place here.

Thanks as always to my readers, colleagues and friends for you encouragement and guidance!

Top Virtualization Blogs – #39

I would like to thank all of my readers who voted in the annual top virtualization blogs poll. It initially took a while to get Eric Siebert to add me to the vLaunchPad (Thanks Eric!), but I used my influence as one of his fellow Tech Field Day delegates during Tech Field Day 5 to convince him to add me to the list. I’m glad I did because this is how I found out about a lot of the virtualization blogs I followed when I was just starting out. Eric has created a valuable resource in his site.

My blogging on virtualization started out slowly in 2010 a few months leading up to VMworld. Last year, especially with the aftermath of the Japanese earthquake, my blogging started to pick up the pace a bit. Now I have lots of ideas for content, but I still have a ways to go.

I realize that the Top 25 virtualization blogs are recognized as the cream of the crop of bloggers in the virtualization community. These blogs are honored during an episode of vChat as well as a special section in the vLaunchPad. I am ecstatic that I made #39 on the list after only about 1.5y as a virtualization, cloud computing and storage blogger. I am looking to work my way up in the list this year as I get more content out that I find to be interesting for myself and others.

Thanks for your support and look out for more exciting content in the future!
