October 2022 Content Wrap-Up

Another blockbuster month is in the books! With in-person events beginning to ramp back up, I was excited to get back out on the road and participate in another North American Collaboration Summit, traveling to Branson, Missouri to hang out with friends and customers, many of which I have not seen since the pandemic began. Before that, I was also able to spend a couple days with my team out in Arlington, Virginia, which is always a pleasure. One thing that I’ve learned in working remotely for the past 12+ years is that there is NO substitute, no matter how great the technology, for face time with your team.

With the close of October, I have completed 14 months of daily blog posts (plus the content that I generate for work), which is the longest I’ve ever achieved that. For those new to the site, my goal is 730 posts in 730 days, and I’m well on my way. The big shift that some of you may have noticed is less channel content from my AvePoint activities. I’m wrapping up a couple of my content series this quarter, making room for a major show to be launched in January. So my series with Sam Valme, called P2Pnow, is being displaced by something bigger. Can’t wait to share more about that.

As for events to close out this year, I have a blog posts coming later this week to detail what is already planned. As for next year, I’ll be on the road a lot more, with some international stops but mostly across the Americas. Lots happening, folks!

Here were my content contributions for this past month:

Community Interviews

One of my favorite things is to interview people within the community. I’m continuing the pace with #MVPbuzzChat interviews published every Monday, and am back to CollabTalk Podcast recordings every Friday. Still ironing out the schedule, but it’s working so far.

The Monthly #CollabTalk TweetJam

October focused on the topic of cloud migration, and November will focus on governance for the Power Platform. If you’re not yet participating in these Twitter-based community discussions, why not? Join us!

Various Articles

As the title suggests, various articles on a variety of topics.

Blatant Self-Promotion

Last month’s wrap-up, in case you missed it.

And that’s it! Always love to get feedback, so if you like what you see here, let me know about it. Want to see more of something, and less of another? Speak up. Thanks!
