It is almost a year since I launched my dedicated SharePoint blog, www.HeySharePoint.com. Alas, I had strong momentum for about six months but was unable to gain traction. I don’t want to use the term “competitive”, but there are a lot of people blogging about SharePoint. This is not a bad thing, as it shows the strength of the community behind this great product. It just makes it harder to get heard.
One of what I thought would be a great drawcard to HeySharePoint.com would be a weekly newsletter aggregating the top Tweets of the week for SharePoint. I tried to promote this as best I could but couldn’t obtain lift off. In the last few months Twitter has updated their API, completely breaking my interface which collated the data. I do intend on bringing this back and making it available on this site, however won’t be publishing it on a weekly basis as I was on HeySharePoint.com (you can see a sample of the results over there). If anyone would be interested in receiving a weekly email, please leave me a comment on this post.
So, I have decided to indefinitely halt any further work on HeySharePoint.com, but will leave the content there for as long as I can. I intend to get back into blogging, however I have had a slight career shift, now focusing on a SharePoint pre-sales role that I am really excited about. I intend to write from a less technical perspective as I have in the past, and add less SharePointy stuff as well.
For everyone who has left their kind words and found this blog to be useful, thanks for your readership, and I hope that you find future content as equally as helpful.
