Blogging Rite of Passage

I haven’t even been blogging very long, but I already came to a point where I needed to search my own blog for a piece of code.

I used to give Chris Toohey a hard time about this frequently when he would search the web for a solution and end up finding it on his own blog, but I’m starting to understand. 🙂

I also noticed that Paul Withers alluded to the same thing in a comment in this post on Mark Roden’s blog

How often has this happened to you?

Hello, Lotus Land (and lotusland, if that’s where you’re at)

Since I’ve been working with Notes (starting with 4.x) I’ve learned so much from those who have contributed to forums ( and maintained blogs (way too many to list). The knowledge-sharing community has been an invaluable resource in my learning and development over the years, but never more so than with the XPages learning curve.

I used to write a lot of articles in the days of Lotus Advisor and answer questions for the original incarnation of, but haven’t published anything recently. So, with plenty of inspiration from my prolific colleagues (currently at PSC and previously at GBS), I think it’s time for me to resume contributing back to the community.

I’ve got a stash of XPages Tips and Tricks that I’ve learned and documented for myself, so I’m looking forward to using this outlet to share them and, hopefully, help shorten the learning curve a bit for others.

Please follow along and let me hear your feedback!
