Today is the renewal date for Microsoft MVPs. I received an email a short while ago informing me that I was being awarded again for the July 2019 – June 2020 timeframe. This is my twelfth award, and I’m quite honored that I was chosen again.
If you don’t know about the award, you can read more on Microsoft’s MVP site. This is a community award for your efforts to promote and help others work with Microsoft products. I’ve spent a lot of my career in this area, as have many others. Often these are the people that write and speak often, and are friends I get to see at various places all over the world.
Microsoft wants to recognize people that do a great job, but there’s a limited budget for doing so, and they pick who they feel are the top contributors, even though there are many more that don’t get recognized.
I want to congratulate all those awarded the MVP designation, whether today or in the past. I also want to thank those of you that answer questions, speak, write articles or blogs, and more to help the community. Many of you have taught me something over the years, and I appreciate all your efforts.
