In the past couple of months, I've started blogging for a couple of training companies -- Upper Training and TrainSignal, to be specific -- and have been writing the occasional guest blog for Anne Martinez at GoCertify.com as well. Add to that my weekly blogs here, and three times a week on cert topics for IT Career JumpStart over at TechTarget, and that's a whole lotta blogging. And because of that, I've returned repeatedly to a free, book-length resource I created for this very own site about two years ago now.
