Whew! It’s July 1st, and I can breathe again. I’ve been holding my breath for the last two weeks or so. My MVP renewal date is July 1st, and it’s always an anxiety filled couple of weeks leading up to it. Fortunately I just got the email I was looking for, “Against our better judgment we’re keeping you in the MVP program for another year,” or words to that affect. Whew!
You can read more about the MVP program at the official site. In short, it’s a bone Microsoft throws guys like me for being active in the community, and providing free marketing and support for their products. The things I do to maintain my MVP status are things like this blog, my Netcast, running a User Group, and other community things. The thing in common with all that is you guys. If you guys didn’t read my blog in the short bursts while it’s online, suffer through my netcasts, and go to the user group I wouldn’t provide any value. So thank YOU for continuing to make this possible. I really appreciate it.
