Of-course it goes without saying, the work culture at Percona and my great colleagues helped me learn and are source of the posts I’ve written.

Highlights of 2023 MySQL blogging journey

In 2023, I completed publishing 100th blog dedicated to MySQL. Keeping a quality content for more than 10 years along with work and personal commitments, it’s been a challenge. Need not to say, ChatGPT wasn’t around for majority of the times (it is still not the source for my articles).

It was a pleasant moment when the nitty-witty.com, “Change Is Inevitable”, gained recognition and listed on the #8 spot as the list of top MySQL blogs of 2023 on Feedspot.

I spontaneously took one MySQL blog a day challenge in the mid year (July), it was a difficult challenge and I have written a detailed post about my learning.


As we step into 2024, the journey continues; I am sure my work place is going to make me meet interesting problems and my friends are going to create some. I invite you, the readers, to share your thoughts, topics or questions you would you like me to write about. If you want to start your blogging journey, I invite you to start here as well. Cheers to the MySQL community!
