Well, it’s been almost two weeks since I got the news of the SBS-MVP award for 2008 (my first). Yeah, I was shocked too.
It’s been pretty cool so far, with lots, and lots, and LOTS of email to read. They call it ‘The Firehose’. And they’re not kidding.
In fact, here is a video of what it’s like to be a new MVP:
Seriously, I do wonder how folks keep up with this level information flow.
Anyway, tonight I got the credentials to finally upload my MVP profile. There’s no HTML or fanciness allowed, just plain text. Hopefully the Microsoft folks have a good sense of humor and won’t veto my content. Also, if you speak Portuguese, I could use some help with the grammar. KTHX. 🙂

I read a LOT of blogs. And by a lot, I confess that it sometimes creeps up to triple digits (in feeds, not just posts). So, since this is the first Saturday of the year, I’m doing the annual pruning the dead wood from the RSS reader.
Who gets the axe? The stale, the blog parrots, the rant-fests, (Scobble got nixed a long time ago).
And this year, instead of just blowing away the stuff that isn’t applicable and moving on, I’d like to take a minute to share appreciation for a new blog I started reading last year that I’ve particularly enjoyed.
This blogger is a Microsoft Small Business Specialist (SBSC).
He’s located in St. Albert, Alberta Canada.
He blogs about Macs, PCs, and SBS.
And he’s the owner of MPECS, Inc.
If you read his blog, you already know who I’m talking about:
If memory serves, I found Philip’s blog via an incoming link on FeedBurner. What a great find! (Both Philip and FeedBurner).
For those who haven’t read Philip yet, his blog is very ‘nuts & bolts’ oriented, with a nice amount of business & Mac mixed in. And the honesty and openness of the posts are refreshing.
So thanks to all the folks still on the blog roll who fight the good fight. And a special thanks to Philip Elder for writing My Favorite New Blog of 2007!
