Here's the opinion piece.
I have mixed feelings on Show and Tell Thursdays. There's a lot of great information out there. The sharing of code tips and tricks is fantastic, but genereally not useful to me as an admin. Best case for development tips is that I'll see something I recognize and pass it along to a developer I know. Reading positive news and "I was able to accomplish X in my company with Domino" stories is always great too.
Maybe I'm just not seeing them but I don't see a lot of admin SnTT writing. It's hard to make admin interesting. There's a lot of things I do during the day that may be interesting or useful to other people but it's hard to pull it out of the context of my day job and put it out there in a way that's understandable and useful to other people in their environment.
If I think of something that I can write about I'll try to get it out for Show and Tell Thursdays in the future (like I did this week). What I have decided to do in the spirit of SnTT when I don't have anything blogworthy to post is spend more time in the Notes.net forums and answer whatever questions I can in there. That way at least I'm contributing something back to the community on a regular basis. I'm trying to make it a habit because I know that the more I give back in finding answers to people's issues, the more I'll be prepared to deal with new issues of my own.
