4-Year Blog Anniversary

Successful blogs, like successful journalists, are usually associated with a particular beat. For example, Mary-Jo Foley has worked the Microsoft beat for a couple of decades. Four years ago, I started this blog to write a bit about Team System. When this blog had its highest throughput, I was working the Team System beat nearly full time while also doing my day job. Since then, my role at Microsoft has changed a couple of times and I find myself further from the Team System Fountain of Truth. I had hoped that my new roles would lead me to more opportunities to cover Visual Studio to the same level I covered Team System, but that's too broad for me and Soma hits all the highlights. Since I don't feel like I have a beat to cover, or at least cover well, I'm thinking it's time to stop posting to this blog. No guarantee I will, but if I do, thanks for reading!

    Rob … no, no, no! You have started up most of what is a powerful TFS/MVP community today! We need your continued input which is both appreciated and needed … Mickey correctly says "you always have something interesting to say and a good viewpoint on a topic" in his blog. Therefore do not STOP blogging here!

    Well, if you do decide to hang up your keyboard, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you for your blogging content over the past 2 years or so that I’ve been reading you. I’m one of the (many) ‘silent readers’ who never comment and do all their reading via a RSS reader. You’ve kept me fed with plenty of useful and interesting material, and introduced me to a load of other bloggers in the process.

    Many thanks for your efforts. It would be great to see you continue blogging (and I’m sure you would continue to find interesting things to talk about).

    All the best,

    Thank you all for the kind words. I’m not in a rush to throw in the towel. I just wasn’t sure there was any interest in posts that weren’t particular to Team System. I should probably heed my own advice from my first post and "blog like nobody’s reading." 🙂
