A note from Tim: Susan Bradley AKA the “SBS Diva”, has been an amazing help to our business with her awesome willingness to assist every time I have had a question about SBS 2003. She has provided information, links to help pages and forums, hot fixes and even posted me a SBS 2003 Best Practices book for free. She well and truly deserves the MPV recognition from Microsoft for her contribution to the SBS community. We’re excited to present her profile today.

What is your reason/motivation for blogging?

It started back in 2003 because the blogging site of was needing to be moved from the ownership of a Microsoft employee to external control.  It would have caused too much personal liability for the person in particular.  So originally I started the blog because I was put in charge of administering a blog site.  I first put tech notes up there, then rant, then items I considered interesting, so I sorta fell into blogging.

What is it that you find yourself blogging about, mostly the same stuff or does it vary?

Mostly it's small business technology focused.  And obviously it has to be something I care about.  So there is a lot about security concerns with small business as that's something I'm passionate about.  :-)

What style of blogging do you do, short and regular, or not so regular but long, other? And is your blogging just text or do you also use audio or video?

Most of the time it's short and regular.  I sometimes have longer posts, but not often.  I will use images, but not usually video.  If I do use video, it's someone else's video as I'm not into making vidcasts and what not.

How Susan became a Geek Girl Blogger:

42-15530438The funny thing is that when I was a young girl, I bought several journals and NEVER would keep writing in them.  Yet here I am on the blog and I've kept it up.  I think if you would have told me way back in 2003 that I would enjoy  dumping thoughts on the web like this, I would have told you you were insane.  But here I am several years later still hanging in there.  I think the key is to go with your passion and don't  force the communication .  Blog because you want to, you like doing it, not because it's some item on a business plan and it's the latest thing to do.   Do it because it makes you see things and consider things in a new light.
