Through out the years I’ve always believed that blogging is a great way of sharing information. I’ve followed lots of blogs for my own learning process (too many to mention but a huge thanks to all my fellow bloggers) and enjoy reading high level posts as well as deep dives. That’s the beauty when bloggning, the posts can be about anything, high or low, 10 000 feet or up close an personal. When I started bloggning it was with that same feeling of letting other people know about this great new thing I discovered or how easy it was to set up a specific function, basically sharing is caring.
So sharing comes first but when it leads to some sort of recognition it really makes blogging even more exciting. I’ve had the great fortune of being appointed as a VMware vExpert 8 times, I have to pinch myself to really understand and let that sink in. Wow, that’s amazing, all I ever wanted to do was to share some bits and pieces that was running through my mind. So I’m really blessed with the recognition I’ve already received but today is yet another good day.
This morning when I woke up I saw an email from Corey Romero, responsible for the vExpert program over at VMware. Corey usually sends a few emails a week so nothing out of the ordinary at that point, but the subject got me really excited. It read “Welcome to the 2017 vExpert VSAN Program”. Jumping up and down with joy. It, at first, didn’t really sink in so I had to visit the announcement page to verify that my name was there…And yes it was. So I’m humbled, proud as can be and now I’m even more excited to leave for VMworld in just over a week.
A great big “Thanks” to all the bloggers I ever followed, to VMware for the great products, again to VMware for having such a great recognition program in vExpert and to anyone that reads and promote blogs.
