So it’s been a while since I posted here. It’s not because I don’t want to blog; I very much do. The problem is figuring exactly what to write about. I thought about doing technical posts, but then realized that I don’t have all the answers or even the best answers. I thought about talking about professional development, but don’t really feel qualified. I could talk more about my upcoming presentation at SQL Saturday Madison, but that would just be blowing my own horn a bit too loud.
Someone once told me that to create an epic blog post, you have to solve a problem. But if you don’t know what problems your audience face, how can you solve them? Sure I could blog about problems I solved or things that I built. I guess if I have problems than other people probably have those same problems but then again, why blog yet another solution to that problem? Especially if I used someone else’s solution to solve the problem.
I then thought about building an open source ETL framework and blog about that process. And that is as far as that went.
The last thought I had was putting together a series of blog posts of the big picture view of business intelligence and how each piece of the Microsoft BI stack fits in. But I can’t even answer that question yet.
So, what to write about?
