My Personal Blog Roll

One of the biggest challenges when I was a new DBA was knowing who I could trust in the endless Google results to my queries. With time, referrals, and experience, I’ve developed (and continue to develop) my own personal blog roll.  I’m sharing it here today.  Please feel free to submit yours!  I love new material.

Anything related to….look for posts by….
