Five Years of Writing about SQL Server

Five years ago I published my first article about SQL Server, "Index Covering Boosts SQL Server Query Performance"

It is still quite popular - I just googled up "index covering", and it comes right on top.
Bing does the same thing. It was just mentioned on stackoverflow, this is how I realized it was that long ago.

Since then, it was all downhill. I wrote a lot of articles, dozens of blog posts, and a book, I liked the process of writing a lot, but they are all less popular than that first one.

Anyway, thank you, my readers! Special thanks to those who share their feedback, leave their comments!

Congrats on the five years.

I am happy that you decided to compile most of them in your book. I really enjoyed reading it, and would recommend it to other SQL Server developers.
