I'm back ... with some news!

I apologize for not posting any new content in quite some time, but now I am back and will soon start posting on a (hopefully!) regular basis once again.

The reason for my hiatus was a pretty good one, though: I recently became a father with the birth of my son Benjamin on October 2, 2008!   He is doing great and already knows that he should always do his formatting at the client and never within the database.  He's a natural!

As if that wasn't enough, I also found out recently I have been named as a 2009 SQL Server MVP!  Now I can finally get a decent seat at a restaurant by pulling the "do you know who I am?" routine.  In all seriousness, though, I am very honored and excited by the award and I intend to live up to it in 2009 by continuing to update this blog and help users out in the SQLTeam forums.

Thank you to everyone who reads this blog and participates in the discussions, and I promise more updates are coming soon.  If you have any specific topics or ideas for a blog post that you think I may be able to cover effectively, just let me know.

Best Regards,

Jeff Smith
SQL Server MVP
(Hey -- I like the way that looks!)

congrats on both counts Jeff.
Kids are great fun, they are hard work (we have two now and they wear us out constantly) but what you get back is amazing.

The MVP thing is pretty cool too, well done!

Fatherhood is GREAT thing! In a few months you'll get a LITTLE sleep again. My little girl (4 months) started sleeping through the night a few weeks ago. YEA!

Nice name, too! If we had a boy we were thinking of naming him Benjamin.
