Technically it was yesterday, September 1st, but in practice it will be tomorrow, September 3rd, because it is a Monday. Tomorrow I start at my new position at a new company. The position is Consultant, and company is Microsoft. Quite a change for me.
This change was pending for a while, and tomorrow it comes to completion. I was never this excited about a new job, and this is my fifth new job in my career. And I never felt this much responsibility. And this much challenge.
In my last job, I practically started as a total beginner, but thanks to great people who I worked with and who mentored me, I was able to quickly advance. But you never get to know where you really stand if you only play football in your own village. You need to go and play with the very best, then you can know for sure. Hic Rhodus, hic salta!
How will this change influence this blog? Well, to be honest, I expect to be more conservative in commenting on the Microsoft Dynamics, and I will probably have to make extra effort to make sure I am not disclosing anything confidential. On the other hand, since I will be at the source of information, as soon as something becomes publicly available, I will be able to be the first to blog about it. That’s kind of cool.
But there is something I really hope will happen to this blog. I really hope somebody other than me will come here, read a post, leave a comment… Come on, people, if I knew it was this hopeless, I would have reconsidered it thrice before starting this whole thing.
Ok, it’s mostly my fault, so far I kept this blog strictly secret. No one, I mean really no one, not even my wife, knew about it. Ok, my wife knew that I started a blog, but she didn’t know where exactly. I wanted to see whether it can happen that somebody simply stumbles upon a blog out of a blue. No it can’t.
But I’ll wait a little more, just for the sheer suspense of checking the statistics every time I return.
