Last month, I joined forces with Andy Warren (BlogTwitter) and Jeremiah Peschka (BlogTwitter) to recognize you, dear blogger, for doing such a great job with your blogs. We wanted to give thanks to the community for churning out so much top-notch material, and there were definitely a lot of great nominations. We spent hours reading and rereading some really phenomenal blogs. Just because you don’t see your name here doesn’t mean you weren’t good – some of these came down to tenths of a point out of a 30-point scale.

With no further ado, here’s the best of the blogs this year:

Best Blog Series (Multiple Posts):

Best Business Intelligence Blog Post:

Best New Blog:

Best Professional Development Blog Post:

Best T-SQL Blog Post:

Best Unusual Blog Post:

We’re going to put together a badge for the winners to display on their blogs, and we’ll be doing some email interviews with the winners. If you’re at #SQLPASS this week, congratulate these bloggers for the killer work they’ve put out, and if you’re not, take a moment to subscribe to their blogs and send them a congratulatory tweet. They’re doing this just for the love of the community, helping out folks like you and me, and we need to recognize them for working so hard.

    One correction: Aaron is no longer blogging on BlogSpot, so the Blog/RSS links are not current. Several weeks ago I invited him to join SQLblog and he accepted the offer, so please check out more of his excellent content at his new home:
