I was just looking around some of my older blog posts and noticed today is my 10 year Anniversary of starting my blog!

My first blog post was titled “Welcome to My BizTalk Blog”. 

Since then, I have made 235 blog posts and uploaded over 76 code samples & videos!

A few pounds heavier (ok, maybe 30 or so), same amount of hair, and +2 kids.

In honor of my 10 year Anniversary I am giving away some prizes!  Just be one of the first people to email me at

I have the following items to give away:

A few 30-day Pluralsight Subscriptions – $30 value.
You could use your subscription to watch my courses on “What’s New in BizTalk Server 2013” or my new course “Into to BizTalk Server 2013 ESB Toolkit”.

A few “Getting Started with BizTalk Services 2013” eBooks – $15 value.

If you do not win the book, you can buy it at Packt or at Amazon.
This is one of those books that every BizTalk Developer should own.

Here is to another 10 years of blogging on BizTalk!
