Yesterday, after partying like a rock star for New Years (actually just played Rock Band with friends), I woke up late to get the email from Microsoft that I have been awarded MVP status for SharePoint Server for 2009! I’m sure everyone is sick of reading blog posts from people that are being renewed and folks like me getting it for the first time… but none the less I felt the need to give thanks to everyone that helped me get to this point.
Firstly, thanks to Shane Young and everyone at SharePoint911 for encouraging and supporting community involvement. Also, thanks to Andrew, Heather, and Ted (and probably a few others I have forgotten) for working with me on so many things throughout 2008. Lastly, thanks to my author team that helped out with the book Professional SharePoint 2007 Design.
I’m thinking 2009 will be a great year… hopefully yours is great as well!
