Let’s get ready to rumble – voting for the 2014 top VMware & virtualization blogs is open!

Eric Siebert (@ericsiebert) from vsphere-land.com yesterday opened this years voting for the 2014 top VMware & virtualization blogs.
There are some plus 300 blogs participating on this years ballot. And new for this year is some great prize giveaways courtesy of Veeam.

A lot changed from the 2008 beginning to this years voting. You can read all about the history in Eric’s http://vsphere-land.com/news/the-history-of-the-top-blog-voting-over-the-years.html
post. A big thanks you is in order to Eric for setting up this contest every year.

I am honoured to be part of the list of great VMware and virtualization blogs. I started a half year ago and this blogging stuff is hard work.
But I’m not ready yet. If you liked any of my content, please remember my blog for the voting. Yes there are a lot of good blogs on vLaunchpad (http://planet.vsphere-land.com/),
I will not be disapointed that much if I’m not in this years top lists. There is always next year(s). My content (and hopefuly my skills) will grow.

For this year voting can be done at this linkie : http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1553027/Top-VMware-virtualization-blogs-2014.
Voting can be done until 17 March 2014.


The voting procedure in short:

  • Step 1, Vote for your ten blogs for the top 50, when you reach ten the checkboxes will be greyed out. The current top 50 (that is the 2013) are in bold in the list. You can find Pascal’s Wereld on the 2014 ballot. But please vote accordant to your own taste.
  • Step 2, Drag the ten votes in the appropiate order. Rank 1 gets 10 points, Rank 10 get 1 point.

Who Am I? Well please to meet you ...I'm Pascal van de Bor and I work as an EUC Consultant/Architect for all kinds of customers. I have been working in IT for ages, doing some networking, Linuxes/Unixes, storage and a little scripting in PowerShellCLI / Perl / PHP along the way. Virtualization became my main area of expertise when I came in contact with VMware and later on a little Citrix and Hyper-V. I work, and worked, at different companies that need EUC expertise on a project/contract basis. I do this at my employer ITQ at the moment. Going from assessing and designing, consultancy, implementation and on the job training for the EUC team. Main focus is the VMware product suite, but I’m not afraid of a little outside of the box. It’s all about synergy isn’t it…. In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 I am awarded vExpert. Great to be part of the community. Outside this blogging space, I love some gaming on the Xbox One, riding my motorcycle around (for the people that only see a flash, I currently ride a Yamaha FZ6-N S2) or playing one of my guitars (Gibson SG, Ibanez electric for shredding and Ibanez steel-string) and listening to (and visiting) music. A little preference for the loud music, but can also enjoy other genres. If you want to get in touch, ask here, follow my twitter feed. Please do connect! - See you around
