Okay, today I have something to celebrate 🎉. Since I missed basically every single blog anniversary or milestone, I was super happy when I saw that I reached 1110 blog posts. Yes, this is my blog post number 1111 on thomasmaurer.ch. I started this blog back in 2008, more-less as a place to save my notes and how-tos as a system administrator, but I think it turned out to much more. It helped me to connect with people from around the world, become part of the community, become a public speaker, become a Microsoft MVP, join Microsoft, make friends, and much more.
With that, I want to say thank you to everyone who is reading my blog. Your comments, messages, emails, and chats at events make all the hours I put in into writing these articles worth it. so with that THANK YOU!

I often get asked from people how do I run a blog, get started in the community, or how do I become a Microsoft MVP and so on. If I learned anything from my blog and the past couple of years, it would be that nothing comes overnight.
It will need a lot of your time, you will need to learn a lot, share your knowledge, be patient and most importantly be consistent. It is not a sprint, it is a marathon. If you calculate that it took me on average one hour per blog post, that would mean that I have written blogs 46.29 days of my life (24/7). And I think one hour per blog post doesn’t even come close with all the learning, research, and building labs. Not even counting the hours and blog posts that have been written but never have been released.
I want to say thank you again, without your feedback I wouldn’t have written 1111 blog posts on thomasmaurer.ch.
