Happy First Anniversary SQL Snippets!

2007-11-18

Well, it's been exactly one year since SQL Snippets first appeared on the web as a prototype site containing 33 pages viewed by a handful of visitors in its first month (a few close friends and the occasional searchbot). It now has over 250 pages, RSS feeds, site search, and HaloScan commenting. It gets thousands of visitors each month from around the globe (including the loyal searchbots, we've become steady friends this past year) and has been blogged about, StumbleUpon'd, and del.icio.us'd. (*ouch*) I'd like to say a big THANK-YOU to all of you who helped spread the word about SQL Snippets or provided feedback about the site in its first year. Your efforts are much appreciated.

The last year has seen a big change in my career as well. Some of you may have noticed the rate of new SQL Snippets topics started dwindling back in July. That's because I went back to work for Oracle that month and no longer have the luxury of working on this site full time. I'm doing pretty much the same job I had when I last worked there in 2006. In fact, I was even re-assigned some of the projects I worked on during my prior stint and they're exactly the way I left them. Some things never change, literally.

Fear not though, I still plan on adding new content when I can. The content management system I built for this site is effectively complete now so, unlike the past 12 months, I won't need to spend too much time on the mechanics of the site and can focus mostly on content going forwards. In fact, I even managed to put together a quick page on a new 11g feature this weekend. Check it out at Columns to Rows: UNPIVOT (11g).

Time for some cake ...
