ITLever reaches one year anniversary

Our first year of using ITLever as a Blog medium has been a lot of fun and I hope beneficial to all who have visited.

In this first year, I posted 300 articles, , , not quite one a day but pretty close. We intentionally included a variety of things from serious IT manager topics,  lots of “how to” tips, IT manager tools and templates you may download, , , and some JUST FOR FUN posts to help us all get away from the work from time to time.

I also posted a few things about my travels as I delivered the IT Manager Institute this past year. Many of these will become some of my fondest memories, I’m sure.

I reduced travel in 2011 to focus on a couple of new projects as we continue our company’s mission of “helping IT managers of the world achieve more success”. You will hear more about this soon.

I hope you have enjoyed ITLever as much as I have in creating it. I encourage you to Leave me a Message in any of the posts to let us know if we are providing content that’s of value to you, , , or if you have different ideas or something to add, , , it’s helpful to our readers.
