Well, its that time of year again where snow is upon us and houses are filled with families celebrating the Holidays. 2 years ago I started this blog while working as a systems admin at a small company finding my path in the IT world and posting lessons I’ve learned along the way. Over the past 2 years my career has grown from a virtualization and Windows admin to working as an Operations Engineer for a hosting company primarily working on Linux systems and various hypervisors. I’ve now found myself in a DevOps role as a cloud engineer working on high availability cloud architecture for household name entertainment companies. Blogging has been a passion of mine throughout my career as i have relied on the blogs of others as well as documentation to find my way out of difficult issues. For things I’ve run into that weren’t terribly intuitive I felt it my responsibility to contribute back to the community in hopes that I can save someone else the same headache I went through to fix an issue. As I come to the 2nd anniversary of the blog I just want to say thank you to all who have come here and read posts and wish all of you happy holidays and happy new year. Also if you’re an IT professional I highly encourage you to blog and contribute back to the community, even if you feel like you don’t have much to contribute, I guarantee you do.
