Maybe today isn't the best time to write this with a death in the family, but can't help but think about life, the future, my parents, my past, and where my life is heading... I know a little, often a very, very little bit, about a lot of things. I enjoy far too many things to ever focus on any one thing for any length of time. With this massive interest, it complicates how I try to master any one or few things. Someday I would like to be nominated as a Microsoft MVP. Having this honor would vindicate my life on so many levels, and with this honor, I bet my experience at my current job would be so much more enjoyable--not with the Title honor, but with the technical knowledge having this honor would imply.
May I ask if you have been or are currently an MS MVP, how did you get started? Did you start a blog? Did you just jump on forums and help out where you could? Did you write/publish code? How did you get started in technology?
I have several ideas for blogs, but I tend to not write because I'm afraid of publishing bad grammar, etc. If you blog, would you say you have good/great grammar or do you blog even without the grammar perfection?
Thank you for your time. Any other advice you have for someone wanting to increase their technical skills but don't know where to start would be appreciated.
