Celebrating 100th Post

by Mo Faheem
100 Posts

This is my 100th Post on D365 update Blog. I am totally wordless and want to show gratitude to everyone who has read, liked, commented and contributed to this blog, as this success won’t be possible without you all.

At that beginning, I had no idea that researching and writing would be part of my daily routine after work hours and at weekends. I believe that Covid’s work environment has helped me, as I have been working from home for over a year, and I have more time than before the pandemic.

100th Post

The task of writing 100 posts was not planned at all and took almost 7 months to achieve. During this period, the blog audience and followers grow every day with every post. Alongside the blog, the social media channels also grew and the LinkedIn page has more than 700 followers.

Celebrating 100th Post

The start

I still remember when I wrote my first blog post and designed the blog and the logo. The journey started when a colleague of mine last Chrismas engorged me to share my 15 years experience working with Dynamics 365, Power Platforms and Azure.

Marketing Experience

One of the main reasons the blog idea consumed me was that I got to practice marketing once more. Marketing was how I got introduced to Microsoft CRM version 4.0, then I helped businesses implement CRM systems for marketing, but I stopped working as a marketer until now.

With the blog, I got to build the website, design each post and work with social media. Now I reached to 100th post.

The first design

When I first designed the blog, it used to look entirely different. I believe that the design was exquisite. However, A dear Dynamics 365 marketing client of mine highlight that it didn’t serve the purpose that it was built for. The old design looked more like a company website and not a blog site.

The new design is more organized and provide an easy access to the blog sections.

The first post

I went back to check the first post “Creating Dynamics 365 Marketing Email Templates Explained!“. I can say that I learned a lot since then. If I get the chance to write to the right again, I will differently write it entirely differently.

The logo

The logo was my wife’s gift to me and to the blog. I believe that this is the chance to show all the logos tries that she made for me.

Thanks to my dear wife for her wonderful design with the logo and her continuous support to me and the blog.

Going forward

I am looking forward to what comes after the 100th post, supporting the community, and looking forward to the 1000th post and more. I hate to believe that I will stop one day and will take every chance to share my experience blogging in the future.

Writing and researching for the blog has helped me to come to speed with the fast pace of Microsoft’s development. I continue learning and using what I learned in my daily work.

Future plans after 100th post

After the 100th post, I am planning to help the community by sharing my experience and provide help through different channels. I tried to create youtube videos, and I believe it is a great channel to use that many Dynamics 365 users
