Techtarget’s WhatIs.com has just selected the FileSlinger™ Backup Blog for an Editor’s Award.
I blush to admit I hadn’t heard of WhatIs.com before. I even wondered whether this might be a new improved form of spam. (The massive number of spam “subscriptions” to the Backup Reminder e-zine has left me particularly jaundiced.) But it’s quite genuine. WhatIs.com turns out to be an IT encyclopedia, where you can look up definitions for computer jargon.
As a columnist more than a blogger, I never expected to get a blog award, so I think it’s pretty cool. Of course, it’s not like there’s a lot of competition in terms of backup and recovery blogs.
