Blog Anniversary

Two years old. In March of 2008 I received a whopping 96 visits. I’m up to 1900 so far this month. I’d call that a positive growth trend. Thanks for stopping by, especially if you’ve been here more than once.

The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).

Most blog traffic is driven by search engines (not devoted readers), so the key to good blog traffic is original and detailed content, along with good search engine indexing. Be sure your blog software allows you to manually create the page's title and the page's URL, which need to include good key words. In addition, the blog post title needs to be key word rich, and consistent with the post's contents.
