 += Blog: A Few Announcements =
 +
 +Hi everyone who takes notice. It is almost two years ago that I did my previous blog. It was to announce that I was ready migrating from my previous site to this one. In the process I grew to 33000 visitors a month and I needed a sponsor and someone who could create me a few logos. No-one ever sponsored me, and no-one ever created logos... But that didn't keep me from creating more and more content, now growing to 550+ technical articles. I have a average of about 55000 visitors a month, topping last October to 77000 visitors that month. Everyone who visits my site stays around for about 10 hits, and altogether my hoster notes a bandwith usage of about 25 GB each month. ​
 +
 +So a big THANK YOU! Even though only a few of you take the time to send me an email or a comment on my facebook page I see a lot of visitors from all over the world and that makes me feel good and appreciated. ​
 +
 +Having that said, I have a few announcements:​
 +
 +**Amount of new articles:** Some of you might have noticed that the number of new articles is a little bit falling behind. The reason behind that is simple, my job is requesting more and more of my managerial skills and less ans less of my technical skills. I have a few good articles coming, and new ones will keep being added but yes, less than a couple of years ago. For now there'​s nothing I can do about that. 
 +
 +**Sabbatical:​** On top of that, at the end of the year I will go on a sabbatical for 10 months. Starting in October '15 and returning in August '16 there will not be a lot of new articles. ​
 +
 +**Comments:​** Also, I'm not happy with the facebook way of comments. On a very short notice I will go back to the old way of adding comments directly to the article. That will be more useful to the article and hopefully a little bit more interactive. ​
 +UPDATE: That's now in place!
 +
 +**Upgrade:​** I have upgraded the software behind getshifting tonight, so everything is up to date again. ​
 +
 +Then the big announcement. This website, blog, wiki or whatever you want to call it has always been about sharing knowledge. It is meant for tutorials, how-to'​s,​ notes, fixes, or just for the fun of it. Now I will start something extra, more fun, more interactive and hopefully, something a lot of people are looking for:
 +
 +**Q** 
 +
 +**Q** will be an IT knowledge booster and exam trainer in one, and will be combined with this wiki, allowing it to become a very powerful learning tool. Roadmap announcements will follow soon, but it comes down to that I will start with a beta containing just a few exams. As it is really easy to add content I hope to add new exams, lessons, and even skill trainers on short notice. ​
 +
 +Will keep you posted, and again, thank you all!
