I wrote my first blog on SAP Community Network at February 17, 2006. So it have been more than 3 years since I wrote Tasting the mix of PHP and SAP.

 

A lot of things had happened after that…I became a Moderator, SAP Mentor, attended SAP TechEd 08 Las Vegas and SAP TechEd Las Vegas 09, meet a lot of great people, wrote a lot of books about programming in both Spanish and English (Including R/3 and NetWeaver of course), run Community Day Lima 08, get married and became the father of a beatiful daughter.

 

Why I’m telling you this? Because along the way, my SCN friends were always by my side…even when the distance split us in different directions, we’re always together. We’re like the biggest family ever.

 

I’m happy because this very blog I’m writing is my 100 blog here on SAP Community Network. I have wrote about PHP, Ruby, Flex, HR and Community related stuff. Always looking to share my knowledge and give the Community back what they give me…the opportunity to be myself.

 

Some people say that I’m both a blogging machine and a book writing machine…but the fact is that without SCN, this wouldn’t be possible. My ability to blog or write books is only compared to the ability of this Community to welcome new folks with open arms. Such inspiration motivates me to keep going forward.

 

While it’s a hard job, I think that blogging is one of the coolest platforms ever invented. I love to be a blogger and I love to be a proud member of this Community.

 

Ok…I know…I love SAP and SCN too much…but I don’t see it as a bad thing, au contraire I thinks it’s great that I spend so much of time here (Of course…only when I’m not in company of my wife and daughter). What makes up a Community like this, is the passion demostrated by it’s members. I meet several people engaged like me…and of course others who are even more engaged, regardless the fact that they actually work for SAP or not.

 

So, I want to share my hapiness with you, because this was one of my main goals and also wanted to invite you to start of keep blogging, contribute on the Wiki, answer the questions on the forums and help us to keep growing and growing.

 

Well, I think it’s enough for today. See you in my next blog.

    Well done Blag. A great achievement that should be celebrated.

    As you are so productive in the blogosphere – do you think you could post a few using my name so I look more active too? 🙂

    Cheers

      It depends on how much money you’re willing to spend LOL And remember…it’s not about the quantity of blogs, but about the quality. You have a few blog posts, but they’re all all high quality and always enjoyable to read -;)

      Greetings,
      Blag.

    Great stuff Blag.

    You sometimes do off the wall stuff but hey that’s you and you bring a lot to this community.

    There is probably a cricket analogy here but because you are not into cricket I will move right along. Take off your helmet and raise your bat to the dressing room!

    Well done and here a glass of Moet to your next hundred.

    Hey Blag,
    Its really nice to read your contributions in various areas. Not being related to scripting language much, I feel more attracted and entertained with your hilarious blogs exposing the Geek Comic author. I really wish you could write atleast one every month. 🙂
    Congratulations on this achievement!!
    Best Regards,
    Prateek
