Yesterday I received the legendary email from Microsoft telling me I'd made the MVP grade for another year. I'm thrilled to be selected again, as I'd assumed my getting the MVP last year was some sort of administrative error that they'd hopefully not notice for a while. :)
2013 was an amazingly busy but highly positive year. I got the MVP award, went to Redmond for the MVP summit, spoke at SharePoint Evolution conference for the first time, launched the SharePoint User Group in Geneva, moved jobs, bought a house, and had a child. Many of those events are unlikely to be repeated in 2014 (though I hope to make it to Redmond again next November!).
The MVP program is a joy to be part of, and I thank all the people at Microsoft and in the community that make my participation possible.
