This is something that I have wanted to start doing for some time now. I always talk myself out of it, saying no one will read it, no one cares what I have to say or I do not know how to write blog posts.
However, this year I have really taken some time to reflect on years past and seen how time has just slipped away. I always have great plans and then life seems to get in the way and I never move forward on those plans. So this year is going to be different. I have made some goals/resolutions that I plan to track and follow as the year progresses.
In the past, these would all be work related. As I grow older (hitting the big 4-0 last year) I find that I want to expand outside of just going to work every day and getting my tasks done and going home. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and the company I work for, but I have always been 1000% focused on work and I want to adjust those ratios. Plus, I have a 6 month old son now that I love to spend time with.
My big plans this year involve getting involved in the SQL community and, as of late, I have had a special interest in the PowerShell community. I am very interested in the dbatools community project because it has so much built-in functionality that I struggled to automate in my early years as a DBA. Chrissy LeMaire @cl has welcomed me and is allowing me to help. So here I start my journey into the blogosphere and hopefully can learn some new things along the way and enhance skills that I currently have.
SQL Goals for the year
- Blog about SQL at least once a month
- Attend local SQL User Groups in Dallas
