Oh man this has been a crazy year! The site actually turned 1 on Feb 15, so I am slightly behind the ball, but I have been crazy busy!

Looking at the picture on the right… if nothing else the site atleast looks better and slicker than what it used to.
It is very interesting how a project like this one becomes something very different than what your original intentions were.

At the core, my original intentions were simply, help others with VMware as I am fumbling around figuring stuff out myself. There are so many great blogs out there for VMware, and some of them the topics can get really advanced and really confusing after the 3rd word. And that’s awesome because those need to exist, but there is also a need for blogs that try to focus on the Introductory VMware user/admin and that is what I try to do here. However some topics are by nature very advanced, so they cannot always be explained in a way that is accessible to everyone, but I have tried and will continue to try to make as much of content accessible to as many people as possible. Besides being able to explain things well I believe helps us understand the topics better ourselves.

So with that primary goal in mind, my site has sort of also become something else as well….a powershell/powercli scripting site. There is no other way around this as I have fallen deeply, deeplly in love with powershell. I am not ashamed to admit it and I will scream it from the top of the mountains if I have to!

Scripting is something again I will try to make accessible to all, however in some cases this might be a harder endeavour.

Still being new to both the VMware and the Powershell community, with only doing VMware for about 1.5years and Powershell for a little less than a year,  I have been very lucky to connect with so many awesome people. Both of these communities have been great and there are SO many helpful people out there who just want everyone to learn and to have fun with these great technologies. Which is something I want to do as well. I want to help people and hopefully get people excited about VMware and Powershell, because both of them are so freakin Awesome!

There was also a recent vote for the Best Blogs in VMware, check out the results here. This site was ranked #167, but I am very happy and proud that it was #8 on the Best New VMware Blogs. Thank you thank you to everyone who voted. It is always nice to know that you are doing something right with one of these things called a blog. I hope I can continue to be helpful and that this blog will become an even better resource for VMware and Powershell.

In the next year I really hope I can produce more content, and more importantly better content. It is something I think about a lot and something I strive hard to accomplish.

Anyway, THANKS to EVERYONE for the first Year and I can’t wait to see what this next one brings!
