Featured Blog Contributors – January & February 2018

In January, I shared a compilation of some of the most outstanding blog posts contributed in 2017, and our plans to publish a bi-monthly version throughout 2018. I am excited to share our first collection of featured blog contributors for January and February here.

As with the annual retrospective, our goals are to help bring posts to your attention that you might have missed, and to recognize the authors who contributed them. The posts were selected based on a combination of factors, including quality indicators by other members, engagement and traffic analytics.

I hope you will join me in congratulating the featured contributors for January and February 2018.


We want to focus on surfacing recent, harder-to-notice blog posts by members you may not know yet. As such, we excluded SAP employees and Mentors from those recognized, we limited the recognition to one post per author (like @Michelle Crapo who had multiple qualifying posts), and only considered posts and likes from January or February.

To all who are recognized, I thank you for sharing your knowledge, expertise and perspective by blogging on the SAP Community.

You must be Logged on to comment or reply to a post.
  • Well, what can I say.. excellent choice !! 😛

    Thank you very much for the promotion of the blogs and of course thank you for choosing mine post!

    Best regards



    • Thank you for commenting and for sharing your perspective on my LinkedIn post.

      I'm doing what I can to help great posts like these and their authors get noticed. Hopefully that will help cultivate more conversations and network building between members, while we wait for some of the platform fixes.

      If you see a new name on the list, follow them. If you read a post and you agree it's good quality, like it. If you have a thought after reading it, share it.

    • So it seems that "Read any blogs you liked lately?" was a blog that a lot of people liked.

      Maybe I should leave a comment: "Yeah. This one." 😀


  • Very nice... Thanks for sharing and Congratulations to all  the featured bloggers keep going. This actually will keep the blogger more motivated.

    • Nice to see you on the list, Joachim. Congratulations! I had meant to do that, thank you for the reminder.

      • Hi Caroleigh,

        I made a detailed Research about RoboAdvice  eg. Digital Developmemt in the Financial Market and so I found this Article here >>

        For sure it is an older one, but nevertheless interesting

        After reading it i used then some Tags to find out more Informations about Banking etc here and so I decided to be (hopefully) a part of this interesting Community in the Future.

        And I would like to share my Knowledge and Interests in Form of some Blog Articles with this Community here.



          • Hi Caroleigh,

            nothing to thank for. May I ask how I "reach" the Allowness to participate here as Blog-Author? I follow all basic requirements for eaching this Status, but til now it is something like "Pending"? Can you give me a short Answer whatelse I have to do?



          • Have you seen this?

            Note being the transition from subscriber to contributor is manual temporarily, so once you meet those requirements, give it 1-2 business days to take affect.

            Once you are a contributor, you can post a blog for review by the moderation team.

          • Hi Caroleigh,

            yes I saw the Requirements there and I followed this (setting a Tag and follow you and another MOD and also the Author from the RoboAdvisor Article).

            Si I have to wait now. What I will do for sure 😉 Hopefully I will be upgraded within the next Days. Would be nice....

            An Article I prepared already



  • So there I was, standing in front of the Wayback machine wondering what blogs were like in the early days of SDN.  Shaking my head at my own silliness, I climbed in and set the date to 2003.  When I climbed out and look around at all the blogs, the first thing I noticed was that they all were all labeled in some tag written in pig latin (or some other odd looking foreign language).

    I started reading some of them and quickly realized they were a mashup of tweets, CC discussion, and odd topics.  Some were really, really bad, but there were some gems out there.  Next I wondered where they were back in the here and now.

    Well, they are still around, but the pig latin was translated into Retagging Required and quite a few were now written by some feller (maybe a gal) name Community User.  So I grabbed a few, gave them appropriate tags and provide them here so you don't have to climb into the Wayback machine (it gives me gas and trust me that is not a good thing).

    Several of these would be better as CC discussions, but there probably wasn't such a choice back then. [my favorite since I did a little work with this technology]

    I hope you enjoy them.  Please let me know if any of them are not active or unable to be loaded.  Links within these often will not work, so don't worry about it.  The conversations after the blogs are also humorous.
