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 Twitter, LinkedIn, or MVP Reconnect!
