Good news! William Stanek, who has written dozens and dozens of wonderful Microsoft Press books for IT professionals, will be writing for our blog regularly! With all the books William writes, we’re really glad he’s willing to find the time to contribute here. As William mentions below, he’ll keep his posts short and sweet, relevant and targeted. Take it, William!

William here. Hi. You probably know me as that Microsoft Technology guy—and yeah if it’s about Windows, servers, or Internet technologies, I’ve probably written a book about it (or two or three or lots more). Writing’s what I do for work, and for fun. As a guest blogger here at the Microsoft Press blog, I’ll be writing about Microsoft technologies—anything and everything is fair game. If you send questions to williamstanek at aol dot com, I’ll gladly blog a response. If you want, you can follow me on Twitter at WilliamStanek or visit my web site at www.williamstanek.com.

My blog posts will usually be short and sweet. I’ll aim for 200 to 500 words that are relevant and targeted to a specific subject. Next up I’ll blog about Group Policy Preferences available in Windows 7.

Well, that’s it for a personal introduction. Now on to the good stuff. Hope you enjoy the posts! ;-)
