I’m [still] a Rockstar Bloggerista

The awesome Thomas LaRock (blog | @sqlrockstar ) has updated his Rockstar Blogger rankings and…I’m still on the list.  It was about this time last year when I first made the cut.   If you recall, I’m in the bottom group, TempDB:

The tempdb group has the bloggers that I want to recognize for doing good work. However, they are also the group of bloggers that could most easily fall off and never been seen again, just like a temp table. There is no line separating names in this group, because they are all equally eligible for promotion or relegation back into my general RSS feeds.

I didn’t changes groups and I didn’t drop off, even though my blogging hasn’t been as strong as it was in the past.  And I didn’t move up the list, even though I’ve shared all kinds of great Canadian rock star knowledge with Tom.  Will dig up some Stompin’ Tom Connors and some more Nickelback for him to try to improve my score for the next ranking event.  Speaking of that, maybe I should send him some Rankin tunes, too. 

Anyway, one of my goals for the next few months is to do a better job of blogging and engaging the community so that I might perhaps build a buffer zone between me and the temp table that is below the TempDB group. 

I recommend you read and follow the bloggers on the Rockstar list.  They produce the best work out there.

I was excited to see that I’ve been recognized as a Rockstar Blogger by Thomas LaRock (blog | @SQLRockstar) at the tempdb level (entry level).  Tempdb is a SQL Server system database and all of Tom’s rockstar bloggers are awarded a level based on these system databases.

As a TempDB level blogger, I fit this profile:

It is a great honour to be listed with all the bloggers on Tom’s list.  You should check out Tom’s blog, plus the others he has listed.  I recommend all of them as well.

Happy Reading.
