Looking at this blog over the past 12 months kind of makes me sick. If you ignore posts that have to do with books and a guest blog post by my brother, you’ll see I’ve only published maybe two or three posts all year. That’s very bad, though the explanation for why can be found in those posts.
I’ve made it very obvious that I wrote a book about virtualizing business critical applications. I’ve been less outgoing about the fact that I’ve actually been involved in three book projects. Yep – three books in one year. In addition to the VBCA book, there’s also Mastering VMware vSphere 5.5 and another called VMware vSphere Performance that will be out next year (I’ll write a blog post on the Performance book as that’s a bit of a unique situation). I’m planning on writing a blog post that talks about writing a technology book in general but suffice to say the effort that goes into writing along with the fact that I have a young family (4 year old and a 1 year old) I’ve had very little time.
The third book is nearly complete and that should free up a lot of my time. I have a task list with several blog topics to write about and more in my head so I’m hoping to once again fill this site with useful virtualization information.
To those who still visit the site and still have me in your RSS feeds – thanks for sticking with me. Hopefully over the coming weeks you’ll see a lot more from me.
