A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about Ed Leighton-Dick's new blogger challenge. I'm quite impressed by the response, and very happy to see so many bloggers take up the challenge. This, to me, seems to be one of those community-defining moments, like the creation of the #sqlhelp hash tag - so please give a virtual pat on the back to @eleightondick when you get a chance.
I thought I would help spread the word about these new bloggers by compiling a list with their names, twitter handles, and links to their first posts (you can also keep watching the #SQLNewBlogger hash tag). If I missed you, please let me know below. :-)
In no particular order (well, I am going to list Nick first, because I like my job, and I feel bad for demolishing him at our little curling event the other night):
Also, anyone still looking to join this challenge, just because it's April 9th doesn't mean you're too late. And if you're lacking inspiration for a topic to write about, there's also a T-SQL Tuesday coming up, hosted by Mike Donnelly (@SQLMD), that can help prime your creative thoughts.
