The Young DBA

Since I started this blog, almost a year ago now, I haven't been able to wrap my hands around what it is exactly that I want to blog about. First it started as a personal journal with random ramblings, but there are so many of those and besides who wants to read that type of material, not me. Then I went on a nutrition weight loss kick and started writing about that but my interest in subject quickly faded. Then I started blogging about SQL and MS SQL Server. I felt like I had finally found my niche, a topic I could easily write about and enjoy writing about.

I found myself having a hard time coming up with good solid material. There is such a large quantity of information about SQL and Microsoft SQL Server written by people more knowledable than me, how could I ever contribute worthwhile material? Hence the reason for my lack of posts. Just the other day it dawned on me, The Young DBA, write about my mission to further my career and expand my skill set, the challenges I face and the lessons I learn along the way.

Now If I was a student in college or even high school and I was thinking about pursuing a career in IT, more specifically Database Administration and Development, this would be material I would be interested in reading.
