Top vBlog 2017 Voting Now Open!

It is that time of the year again — the Top vBlog voting is now open! Just like previous years, you are asked to vote based on criteria including longevity, length, frequency, and quality. Like the last few years, I have blogged extensively on Log Insight — I wish that had a top Management Blog category! In addition, I have covered other VMware topics including vSphere, NSX, VIDM, and PowerCLI. In total, I published over 90 posts in 2016 — a decrease from 2015, but I hope an increase in quality of content. I appreciate your consideration in voting this year!

Top vBlog 2016 Voting Now Open!

As you may have heard, the Top vBlog 2016 voting is now open thanks to Eric Siebert! Just like years past, the goal is to announce the top 50 VMware and virtualization blogs of 2016 based on the following criteria:

  • Longevity
  • Length
  • Frequency
  • Quality

I am honored to be on the list again this year alongside so many other bloggers and wanted to thank everyone in advance for consideration of my blog. Looking at the criteria, here are my statistics for the last year:

  • Longevity (how long they have been blogging for): I have been blogging since 2009 and my first post on SFlanders.net was in 2011. I have been blogging about Log Insight since it was first announced back in June of 2013.
  • Length (how long the posts are): My in-depth technical posts are typically 800 words while most other posts are typically 300 words. Excluding posts with code or CLI output, it looks like my longest post is just sigh of 1500 words!
  • Frequency (how often they post): I blog three times a week. I had 156 blog posts in 2015 with 101 of them on Log Insight.
  • Quality (how well the posts are written): I will let you decide 🙂

Voting is open until 5/27 so do not delay. You can read all the details here or jump straight to voting here.

Top vBlog 2015 – Please Vote!

It is that time of the year again: Voting for the Top vBlogs of 2015! What is it? It is a survey asking you to select what you believe are the top 10 VMware and virtualization blogs. I would like to thank Eric Siebert for organizing the annual event and Infinio for sponsoring the survey in 2015.

Last year was the first year I requested my blog be entered. My focus for the last year has been around VMware management products and specifically Log Insight. I hope you have enjoyed and found value in the content and I would greatly appreciate your consideration during voting this year. There are a ton of quality blogs out there and over 1400 represented in this survey; I encourage you to look into as many as you can.

When voting, consider the following aspects:

  • Frequency (how often they post): I blog three times a week.
  • Quality (how well the posts are): I will let you decide 🙂
  • Length (how long the posts are): My in-depth technical posts are typically 800 word while most other posts are typically 300 words.
  • Longevity (how long they have been blogging for): I have been blogging since 2009 and my first post on SFlanders.net was in 2011. I have been blogging about Log Insight since it was first announced.

Note that the above considerations are suggestions. I would encourage you to vote for blogs that have been helpful to you over the past year. Please take the time to fill out the survey and thanks for your consideration: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2032977/TopvBlog2015
