Invitation to T-SQL Tuesday #014

Hello and welcome to the first T-SQL Tuesday of 2011!

2010 was a great year for T-SQL Tuesdays, dreamed up and instigated by Adam Machanic (blog, Twitter) in December of 09 (see his recent blog T-SQL Tuesday Meta Roundup).  So tell us, Adam…what is a T-SQL Tuesday?

Each month a blog will host the party, and about a week before the second Tuesday of the month a theme will be posted. Any blogger that wishes to participate is invited to write a post on the chosen topic. The event is called “T-SQL Tuesday”, but any post that is related to both SQL Server and the theme is fair game. So feel free to post about SSIS, SSRS, Java integration, or whatever other technologies you’re working with in conjunction with SQL Server. Even if your post includes no T-SQL we still want to see it. 

Sa-weet.  The topic I have chose for the inagural 2011 T-SQL Tuesday is….wait for it…….

Resolutions!

So tell us: what techie resolutions have you been pondering, and why?  Are you heading for a certification? An award? Are you looking to pick up CLR because that guy at the Summit said it’s “bitchin'”? Go crazy…

  1. Window of opportunity: Your post must go live between 00:00:00 GMT on Tuesday the 11th of January and 00:00:00 GMT on Wednesday the 12th.
  2. Show some love: Your blog post has to link back to the hosting blog, and the link must be anchored from the logo (the blue one shown here, not the stick figure “YAY!” one) which must also appear at the top of the post.
  3. Check your work: If trackbacks won’t work properly then please leave a comment below so that your post is accounted for in the roundup.

Bonus points are like brownie points – there’s no way to redeem them, but you feel good about it anyway. Earn some by using these brilliant suggestions:

  1. Advertise! Include a reference to T-SQL Tuesday in the title of your post.
  2. Tweet! Use the hash tag #TSQL2sDay to follow links and other relevant conversations.
  3. Host! Consider hosting T-SQL Tuesday yourself. If you’re interested let Adam Machanic Know. If you’ve participated in two T-SQL Tuesdays previously and you keep up your blog (blog monthly for the last six months) then he’ll put you in the rotation.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  2. I usually do not comment, however I read a lot of remarks on Invitation to T-SQL
    Tuesday #014 | The MidnightDBA Star-Times. I do have a few questions
    for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or does it appear like a
    few of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with anything new you have to
    post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
