It's obvious I share, but I have somehow acquired the (occasional) ability to help others recognize their expertise and/or to share online. Knowledge professionals are more likely to contribute to their profession's thought leadership after meeting me.
If you're familiar with D&D or MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) terminology, it's like I have a Flaming Sword of Sharing with a proc that lights the sharing fire in you.
At least three of my colleagues started blogs because of an internal speech I gave. Most of my colleagues in North America and some in Amsterdam started sharing after I joined (correlation doesn't prove causation, but maybe I can take credit for the inevitable here!).
One of these sharers has surpassed me. No, not in quantity, but in page views. Congratulations to Mihai for surpasing CreateAndBreak's page views. Maybe I'll catch up to him, who knows? Mr. Action Mihai Code-ariu's blog, Yet Another Tridion Blog is on fire.
It took me about 2 years to get to 79,419 page views. Mihai passed me in a little over a year. Who's next?
I'm sure hyper-connected Web-savvy millennials will eventually put our numbers to shame. Until then, wield your Swords of Sharing and let's ignite the SDL Tridion Technical community again.
Keep in mind it's not a competition (unless you happen to be me or Mihai). Page views is just one of many ways that demonstrates impact, you won't know your contribution to the community until you actually publish.
