I’m lucky enough to be one of the April Fools MVPs. Last year I wasn’t sure at first if the email was an April Fools joke or not, and this year I’m just as happy that it’s not. This marks the second time I’ve been awarded Microsoft MVP. Last year I was awarded in the “Virtual Earth” category, and last fall they renamed me to “Windows Live Platform”. This year I am awarded in the same “Windows Live Platform” category.

In case you’re not familiar with the Microsoft MVP Program, here’s a link for more information:

And Congratulations to all those that have also been awarded MVP on this April Fools day. Especially to those who’ve gotten awarded for the first time; keep it up.
