Hip Hip Hooray, 10 years of blogging

This month it has been 10 years ago that I published my first blog post. The post was about Oracle BPEL which was quite hot back then. Of course lots has changed in IT since then but not my eagerness to learn new things and writing about them.
Last week I received a mail that my blog was selected as one of the top 40 Java blogs on the web (not sure if that is good as I was in the top 5 in 2015 :-/). But nevertheless I guess this is one of the reasons I am writing these posts: to help out others as other blogs are often helping me.
Another important reason is getting new assignments by showing others what I am working on. Besides starting to blog ten years ago I also started working as a IT freelancer. This blog brought me several freelance assignments of which the nicest one was a three week job in Mauritius during the Dutch winter season 😎
So I intend to keep on posting for at least the next ten years. There is still enough to learn as I notice every day and who knows what it might bring.
