Regarding awareness:  It might be worth having a standard little blurb (or link as Im sure there is a post somewhere) to let people know what T-SQL Tuesday is.  

On that note, what is T-SQL Tuesday and how does one participate?

Hi AgileBI,

T-SQL Tuesday is a monthly "blog party". A blogger hosts the event and declares a theme for the month. Any blogger who wishes to participate can do so by simply writing a blog post on the theme. There are some rules -- the post has to link back to the host blog, and has to clearly identify itself as participating in the event. Then the host blogger writes a "round up" post and so that anyone interested can go find all of the blog posts for the month.

Goals: To generate lots of interesting content, to generate lots of links between SQL Server blogs and strengthen our web presence, and to have fun.

Here's the original post where I first introduced the event:

Let me know if you have any further questions.
