This week, five months ago Virtual Cloud was inaugurated. At that time I wasn’t sure if I would be able to find enough content to populate the blog but I have learned that the more you write the easier it gets.
After 51 posts I am still here, and about a month ago the blog was migrated to a new domain and received some publicity banners. I don’t expect to make any money out of this blog and that never was my intention when I started blogging. I was only trying to be part of the community, be seen as a reference for virtualization and share some knowledge.
I now have the people that I used to follow and label them as virtualization gurus talking and discussing with me. I think I was successful in my initiative and I’m happy for that.
December alone, since the blog was migrated to the new URL, there were almost 60,000 hits.
During 2010, 25% of the money generated by this blog will go to an institution nominated by my readers. Every 3 months a public pool will decide a new institution in the need for the money and the donation receipt will be posted online.
Unfortunately I am not allowed to encourage my readers to click on AD’s (AdSense Rules) but you may be able to donate a U$ 1.00 via PayPal. The donate icon is on the Blogging for a Cause page (http://myvirtualcloud.net/?page_id=389).
We are very fortunate to able to discuss about green computing, savings from consolidation etc… Some people would like to have some medical assistance and others just a plate of food.
If you are a blog owner and would like to join me in this movement please get in contact with me through the About page.
In the meantime I am accepting suggestions for the first institution!
I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!
