I know that it has been a while since I last posted a blog entry. The break wasn’t because I didn’t have ideas, nor because I didn’t want to blog. When I started the Managed Modern Endpoint blog at the end of 2019, I had grand plans for what I wanted to accomplish. I thought writing two new posts a week would be easy and hoped that I would be able to leverage that content to find speaking opportunities. My plan was to supercharge my personal development and engage with the Endpoint Manager community.
Early on, the returns were obvious. I was gaining Twitter followers and my blog saw a modest, but steady, audience. Two blog posts a week proved to be a greater challenge than I expected, but everything else fell into place. By the end of March, I had my first open invitation to speak at a user group and my content was improving.
There are a dozen cliches I could insert here about 2020, and no matter which one I choose, the message is the same. Plans changed. Working remotely posed a new set of challenges. Our house didn’t have a dedicated workspace. The end of the workday wasn’t well defined. Suddenly working on a personal blog felt too much like the work I was doing for eight or more hours a day. Eventually, I moved my rudimentary workspace down to our unfinished basement – and that quickly led to a new project.
My name is Sean Bulger. I am an IT Pro that has worked in the Modern Endpoint Management work space since 2015. I have worked in various environment, ranging from mature enterprise all the way down to a fledgling IT organization looking to find their way in a cloud first world. Before rejoining the technology field in 2014 I had a wide range of careers - from plumber to paramedic - that have helped to shape my perspective on the world.
