Blogging 101 Day One: Introduce yourself to the world

Having enrolled in the blogging 101 to see if I can improve my blog here’s the first assignment.

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?

So this one is easy, it’s to shorten my google search to just my blog for anything ARS / Powershell or AD related.  Like that’s going to happen any time soon.  This is where I’m posting all the things I find out in the hope that other people can make use of it and save them the pain of solving it themselves

  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?

Another easy one, come on surely you can think of a harder question?  ARS, PowerShell and AD related topics oh and my new app Password Manager Pro.  There’s lots of things wrong with PMP so I can see a lot of posts on this in the coming months.

  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?

Other IT people working in the same area as me.  I’d actually like, in some instances to get feed back on possible solutions that I post.

  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

Actually I’m not that organised in that I have a goal that I want to achieve with the blog.  Which is good, right as I can’t fail either.  Who said if you fail to plan you plan to fail.  They got that wrong didn’t they 🙂

Anyways, Happy New Year!






Posh Posting in wordpress

It’s good to see that the help system works anyway.  I found this link to allow me to keep the formatting of my PowerShell code when I add it to my blog.

it’s as simple as enclosing your script in some tags as described in the link above

[ code language=”powershell” ]
“your code here”
[ /code ]

(I had to put extra spaces in to avoid wordpress from converting the lines to a code block – you need to remove these before using this in your blog )
