...glad to hear you find my articles valuable!
But, keep in mind that in all but 5 cases, every technical topic slideshow with my byline is based on a stand-alone article. In other words, you can find both a traditional article and a slideshow. That is the case here.
The opening paragraph of the slideshow contains a link to the article:
This slideshow is also available in the blog format in the Windows and Office Blog.
...and the opening paragraph of the article contains a link to the slideshow:
This blog post is also available in the Slideshow format in a TechRepublic Photo Gallery.
Not everyone likes a slideshow and not everyone likes an article, so having both allows folks in each camp to view the format they like better.
When Mark (my TR Editor) and I came up with the Slideshow Tips idea back in May, we were looking for a way to expand the slideshow concept and thought that having more targeted information available only in the slideshow format would be a good thing. But, from the negative feedback we received, apparently that is not always going to be the case. However, I must point out that there was a lot of positive feedback as well as the fact that those slideshows were extremely popular--literally thousands of TR readers visited them.
Going forward Mark and I have decided to discontinue the Slideshow Tips ONLY format. Any tips designed primarly for a Slideshow format will ALSO have a separate article available.
Just for the record, here is a list of the 5 Slideshow Tips that I have produced for TechRepublic that did NOT provide a separate blog post:
