I thought long and hard how to write this post. I actually thought about not writing it and just creating some tool or something to say thanks (I’ll do that also). Yesterday via the vChat video podcast Eric Siebert, Simon Seagrave, David Davis, and special guest John Troyer announced the winners of the Top 25 VMware blog poll. After an awesome introduction by Dr. Steven Herrod, they went through each of the 25 winners in order. I just about fell out of my chair when Nickapedia.com was mentioned as #24. The comments about me were gracious and honestly a little embarrassing. I am happy I am perceived that way but have no idea how the heck I got here :)
I really don’t know the proper way to react other than to say thank you to every single person who voted for me. My hope is that your votes won’t go unrewarded and I promise to work extra hard to provide great content here for you to read/use/download. My goal all along has been to inspire others to do original things and think about stuff in a new way. I take the results of this voting to be a sign that I am heading in the right direction.
So once again I want to thanks everyone who voted (and not just for me), Eric Siebert, Simon Seagrave, David Davis, John Troyer, Dr. Steven Herrod, Chad Sakac and my vSpecialist teammates, and the entire VMware community. It is kind of cool to a part of just a wicked awesome community.
