A Last Hurrah: It’s Been a Good Run, But…

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

Dear Readers:

It’s been my great pleasure and privilege to have worked on this blog since August 4, 2008. Over that period, I’ve posted 782 times here (including this post) for an average of 11.5 posts per month. Considering that my target was 12 posts per month, but that life (and vacations) have a way of reducing actual monthly or annual productivity, I’m pretty proud of what I’ve been able to share with my audience over the past five-and-three-quarter years. But I’ve gotten so busy with other work, and I’ve found so many outlets for my thoughts on IT certification that I’ve agreed with TechTarget and the IT Knowledge Exchange to discontinue this blog as of today.

I hope this doesn’t come as too much (or rude) of a shock, and I hope I leave my readers satisfied with what I’ve shared with them here over the years. If you’d like to keep up with my thoughts and reporting on IT certification, I’ll still be writing certification articles for a variety of TechTarget sites that include,,,, and more. I will also keep up my Windows desktop blog for TechTarget — it’s called Windows Enterprise Desktop — and I will keep blogging regularly (though not as frequently as here at IT Career Jumpstart) for the following websites:

1. Tom’s IT Pro: “Making it in IT” (104 weekly posts since 2012; annual frequency: 48 times per year)
2. Pearson IT Certification: “Ed Tittel’s IT Certification Success Blog” (152 posts since March 2011 available online; annual frequency: 48 times per year)
3. “Ed Tittel Blog” (2 blog posts so far — just started — annual frequency 24 times per year; 13 items currently available)

I’d like to thank my readers for the many good questions and helpful comments they’ve made over the past 5-plus years. Your interest, insight, and input helped drive a lot of the content for this blog, and helped me pay attention to topics, technologies, credentials and training offerings of interest to a broader audience. I hope you’ll follow me to my other blogs, and keep in touch through IT Knowledge Exchange as well. I’m still on tap to answer training, certification, and career development questions for IT Professionals who would like to share them with us, so keep those questions and requests for information coming, too, please!

Best wishes also to all of us, and thanks again for everything!

    Hi Ed,

    Thanks for a great blog. I will continue to read your stuff on those other blogs. I put a link of your work for Tom's IT Pros in my blog:

    Good luck in the future and go travel the world!

    Dear Ken:

    Thanks for the comment, and for your linkback, too. I am not so much leaving the blog, as changing my work mix and "spreading the wealth" (at least, that's how I like to think of it. ;-). Do please stay in touch, and let me know if you'd like me to provide a guest post for your blog every now and then.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Ed,

    I guess I'll see you around the Interwebs! I always enjoy your posts here. I'm glad you've found new and exciting publications to fill with your words of wisdom. Happy writing :)
