100th Post

17. February 2007 02:16

Drumroll please...

This is the one hundredth post I have made since starting this blog back in October 2005. 

It is depressing to know that it took me that long to reach the 100 mark.  Granted, I didn't really do very much with this blog for the first 4 to 6 months after its debut.  However, I think the quality and frequency of posts has dramatically improved since that time.  But, there is still work to do.

As part of my New Years Resolution, I have been attempting to make a minimum of two useful posts each week.  Now, the word "useful" is fairly open to interpretation, but I think I have managed to stick to it...for the most part. 

Blogging on a regular basis is not really that difficult.  Unfortunately, blogging useful information on a regular basis is extremely difficult (at least to me).  It's not a problem to come up with material to post, but there is a significant amount of time involved with writing the posts, creating code examples, and structuring it in a manner that is easy to digest.

So, you may be wondering why do it if it is so much trouble?  Well, it is something that I enjoy.  And, it gives me an excuse to dig deeper into technologies that interest me.  Besides, there is the added bonus of occasionally posting something that actually helps someone.

Speaking of useful information, I will be posting an article and demo about WCF Callback Contracts within the next day or two.  I would like the focus of my blog to be centered around WCF with a dusting of general architecture, design patterns, and other fun stuff.  My topics have been a bit scattered lately, and I want to get back to more meaty material on what really interests me.

I am going to attempt to start posting at least one WCF demo a week.  It will likely vary in quality from week to week due to time constraints, but I want to start pushing out more code examples.  If there is a specific topic in WCF that you would like to know more about, send me a message and I will try to do a post on it.
