Over the last decade, I have known that the day would arrive when I would not be renewed as a Microsoft MVP.
I would like to say that I am not disappointed, but even knowing that something is eventually coming does not mean that you are ready for it. The truth is that being a Microsoft MVP has been the highlight of my professional career. Thank you to all the incredible folks at Microsoft and my fellow MVPs who took me in and made me a family member (you all know who you are).
I know that the MVP program is in great hands and the Microsoft MVPs, in turn, have the Microsoft community in good hands.
I plan on continuing to do what I did before I was an MVP and while I was an MVP – contributing to the community through my blog and speaking at technical conferences wherever it makes sense. So feel free to look me up on my blog, Twitter, LinkedIn, or MVP Reconnect!
