The US Federal Trade Commission requires bloggers and other endorsers (you know like celebrities) to disclose their relationships in public. I happened across Jason Strate’s disclosure (@StrateSQL) who referred to Brent Ozar’s disclosure. So, when I thought about it, I get my livelihood from working with Microsoft products and a Microsoft partner and decided to put together this disclosure for those who are “interested”.
Who Pays My Salary
I am employed by Pragmatic Works which is a Microsoft Gold Partner. While I am employed there, I am not paid to blog. I blog because it helps raise my overall value in the marketplace and frankly I enjoy doing it.
Where Is My Content
I publish content on this site. I also blog occasionally at Pragmatic Works and my blog is syndicated there as well. It is good for both of us. I am also syndicated on a number of sites including SQL Server Central and SQLServerPedia. Comments on my blog are managed by me. Comments on other sites are managed by those sites.
Identities and Social Media
I am identified in Twitter as @DataOnWheels. I have a Facebook page, but this is for more personal information to connect to friends. I connect within the business and technical communities using LinkedIn. You can get to my Twitter and LinkedIn information elsewhere in my blog.
I am sure there are more topics that may need to be covered over time, but this is a start. If you have questions or concerns feel free to post a comment here and I will try to respond as needed.
