Carlarjenkins.com has had the best blogging year in 2022 with over 31,000 Google Analytics pageviews! This is major because last year in 2021, www.carlarjenkins.com amassed 17,000 pageviews!
Here are my reasons for the significant increase
- Certified in Cybersecurity blog posts
- SBA COVID EIDL Hardship Accommodation Plan blog posts
- SC-100, SC-200 and SC-300 Being Added to ISC2 CISSP Approved Credential List
- First-hand SC-100 beta account
- Top 3 cloud coverage (AWS, Azure and Google Cloud)
Certified in Cybersecurity blog posts
My YouTube video now has over 5000 views. It totally came by surprised. I just took advantage of the ISC2 One Million Certified in Cybersecurity promotion to become an ISC2 candidate and receive my free cybersecurity certification.
When I shot my Certified in Cybersecurity post-exam Facebook Live, I did not expect so many people to watch and comment on it. But they did. I felt that my telling the viewer that you would need way more than the ISC2 provided resources to pass your exam resonated with some many people.
Here is the Certified in Cybersecurity YouTube video here with the additional exam prep resources in the description tab.
SBA COVID EIDL Hardship Accommodation Plan blog posts
Once again, another post that took on a life of its own. I wrote about the SBA COVID EIDL (economic injury disaster loan) hardship accommodation plan. I received this comment out from nowhere which made my day. I made a follow-up blog post about it; and, all of a sudden people would come to my Facebook Messenger asking questions.
SC-100, SC-200 and SC-300 Being Added to ISC2 CISSP Approved Credential List
The SC-100 Cybersecurity Architect Expert is the final Microsoft Security certification exam. There are 4 prerequisite associate exams (AZ-500, MS-500, SC-200 and SC-300) to qualify before sitting for the SC-100.
I took and passed the SC-100 beta exam becoming one of the first Certified Cybersecurity Architect Expert recipients. I later petitioned the ISC2 programs office to add SC-100 since you has the Microsoft 365 Enterprise Administrator (The Enterprise Administrator has been removed.).
Later I checked the CISSP approved credential list and saw that ISC2 added SC-200 Security Operations Analyst and SC-300 IAM Administrator associate certifications to the list.
First-hand SC-100 beta account
Readers come to www.carlarjenkins.com because they’ll get first-hand witness accounts about all of these certifications plus the exam prep resources they’d need to pass. The same thing with the SC-100. In 2021, Microsoft debuted 4 new Microsoft Security certifications: SC-900 Security Fundamentals, SC-200 Security Operations Analyst, SC-300 IAM Administrator, and SC-400 Information Protection Administrator. A lot of people were clamoring for an expert-level certification. In 2022, Microsoft created the SC-100 Cybersecurity Architect Expert exam. I was a beta tester and passed the SC-100 becoming one of the first recipients.
Top 3 cloud coverage (AWS, Azure and Google Cloud)
Cloud Computing is still growing by leaps and bounds. The top 3 right now are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). I wrote a whole lot about these three clouds and free and discounted ways to get certified.
Furthermore, I extensively wrote two blog series This Week In AWS Community and GCP Jumpstart session recaps taking you behind the scenes of two top professional development programs.
I also wrote about Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) although it is not top 3. OCI is still offering free Foundations Associate and Data Management Foundations Associate exam prep training and certification exams. OCI also extended its expiration dates from 18 months to 2 years for foundations certifications which was huge.
Cloud will continue to be big in 2023 and www.carlarjenkins.com will continue to cover it.
