Thanks to all those that voted for “IT Should Just Work” in the IT Blog Awards and passed the devious maths test at the bottom of the voting form. I’m shocked and humbled to let you all know that the results are in and this blog won the award for Best Analysis. It’s surprised me, and the flurry of social media activity through the weekend following the announcement has shown there’s some big winners in the other categories.
I’d recommend anyone reading this visits the IT Blog Awards page and checks out the other winning blogs. Congratulations all!
To quote the list:
Thanks again- it’s always good to know that someone reads what I write and (hopefully) finds it useful or informative.
I’m pleased to announce this blog is a finalist in the 2018 IT Blog Awards hosted by Cisco in the category of “Best Analysis”. Voting is open to the tech community through January 4th 2019, so if you’ve found this blog useful or insightful at any point (or you’ve followed my advice and your datacentre didn’t catch fire as a result) please can you go to http://cs.co/itblogawards and pop in a vote for “IT Should Just Work” in the first section.
If you don’t want to vote for this blog, that’s fair enough, but I’d still recommend having a look at the voting form if only for the awesome “I’m not a bot” section at the bottom.
Voting is now open for the Top vBlog 2016 Awards, and I am pleased to say that this blog- IT Should Just Work – is in the running for the first time. It’s an honour to be just in the list with all these prestigious names, so please go and check it out (and if you are feeling very kind give me a vote!). Full details at vSphere Land here, and the voting form is here.
Top vBlog 2016
I’m proud to say that this blog has been added to the vBlog Database, an index of over 400 virtualisation related blogs maintained by Andreas Lesslhumer at running-system.com.
If you’re interested in Virtualisation technology, and in particular if you want to hear the nitty-gritty and nuts and bolts point of view from the users rather than the sales pitch, I’d thoroughly recommend browsing the list. There are some real geniuses of the community here, including many from the VMware vExpert community and several VCDX holders.
Thanks Andreas, it’s an honour to see this blog featured amongst such prestigious company. To anyone reading this, please go check it out (but please come back!).
