100 Blog Posts


This is the 100th post published on this blog! Even for me, it’s hard to believe it! When I started the blog in May of 2011 (remember this teeny-tiny post) I couldn’t imagine that the blog will be active after almost 2.5 years. But, here it is, growing week by week and month after month! To tell you the truth, during that time (May 2011) I didn’t think that I would be able to write 100 posts since I was afraid that I would not have enough ideas. However, this thought proved to be wrong!

I should clarify that without YOUR contribution this blog would not have grown up so quickly. With your comments and emails, you have motivated me to think a lot of interesting ideas, especially for developing new VBA code. Many of these ideas/suggestions have been published in this blog, so THANK YOU ALL for your contribution in this blog. I strongly suggest you to continue commenting or sending me emails with whatever problem/suggestion/recommendation you might have.

I really like to communicate with you, so every comment, email, Youtube comment etc. you make will get an answer. Of course, my day doesn’t have 48 hours (that would be really nice), so sometimes I may not be able to answer you immediately. However, a response will be provided as soon as I find some free time (usually during the weekends).

So, let’s build this blog together!

Posts distribution

Posts Distribution

Since I always like to keep statistics, the pie chart above presents the distribution of posts in the main blog categories. It is evident that the dominant category is Office Tips, while the percentage of Freeware Tools category is quite close to it. Actually, these two categories constitute almost the 2/3 of the published posts and the other 4 categories the rest 1/3. The Quick Weekend Tips contribution is only 2% (the smallest one) since this category was introduced relatively recently, but, hopefully, this percentage will increase in the future. You can find all the published blog post titles – with the corresponding links – at blog contents page.
By the way, the picture at the beginning of this post is a collage of an AutoCAD drawing and some colored Excel cells, just to emphasize the importance of these two tools on post subjects. However, the posts don’t focus only on those two tools. As post titles reveal there is much software used and discussed in this blog – Adobe Professional, Matlab, PowerPoint, Access to name some, so there is a lot of variety of blog subjects.

A never-ending updating process

Apart from major updates, like the one it was done in previous May, the blog is in an endless updating process! In my daily life I am a fan of the “every day you should become better on something”, even this is human relationships, your work, your favorite game etc. So, I am trying to follow the “daily improvement” approach also on this blog.  Some days ago, for example, I started renewing the layout of my first posts in order to be consistent with the layout of my latest ones. I am improving the code, the pictures and, in general, everything I don’t like. So, I am suggesting you visit the older posts from time to time and you might find something new there.

In the same vein, I uploaded a new presentation on the freelance work page, where you can find more information about how I can help you automate your daily routine tasks. In order to celebrate the 100 posts, I created a new page where you can find a new offer: projects at fixed prices, starting from only 5 €! Moreover, on advertising page, you can find new discount prices on advertising fees!

The best is yet to come

To sum up, I would like to thank all of you once again for your contribution to this blog. I hope that you will be here in the celebration of the next 100 posts. Please, feel free to write your thoughts on this blog in the comments section below.
