A day in the life of an Oracle Applications Consultant

OracleAppsBlog celebrates one year of existence

I had one of our readers remind me the other day that the blog has now been in existence for a year. Running the blog has proved to be very rewarding despite the time commitment required to keep it updated. Now that I’m settled in the UK (having moved from Botswana last year) and have broadband Internet access, I should be able to keep the blog more regularly updated. I’m hoping to write at least one post every week day i.e. five posts a week. Achieving this will easily be possible if I can find more blog authors. If you’re interested in becoming an author for this blog or know of anyone who could contribute then drop me a mail.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for reading the blog and participating in the discussions. Thanks also to the blog authors for their contributions. The blog now boasts a membership of just more than 1,000 and has had over 800,000 page views in the year. I have many plans for improvement over the next year including a complete site redesign - more on that in due course. Hopefully I will find the time to implement my list of enhancements. I’m really keen on obtaining feedback as to how you think the blog can improve so please add your comments to this post if you have any ideas or suggestions.

  1. Michael, I certainly agree with your comments I think I need to have the comments displaying on the main page as well. I am going to try and update the author guide very soon as well as provide a sandbox for level 2 authors. Incidentally, if you subscribe to my RSS feed and read it through a reader, you will notice it comes with comments so that’s a workaround for now.

    Gavin, I’m certainly open to you blogging about your companies products if it provides information that would be useful for apps consultants. I agree with your comments about the categories I’m going to try and create them as folders so that double clicking will open the folders. If you look at the bottom of the blog you will notice that there’s now a public site meter available which I will blog about shortly. Real time Geographic distribution of visitors is here

    Mandar I actually thought the search was quite good on the blog but perhaps I should conduct a poll so that other users can let me know if it’s been effective. What I am planning to implement is a plugin called LiveSearch which should enhance the search experience. Also EE1.3 is due to be release shortly so perhaps they will have improved the search capability.
