I think everything published made a bunch of sense. However, think about this, suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean How to Remove/Delete Resource group using powershell command in Microsoft Azure is a little vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write post headlines to gget people to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
I am really impressed along with your writing talents as smartly as with the format on your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it your self? Anyway stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..

I have learn some good stuff here. Certainly value bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much attempt you put to create this sort of magnificent informative website.
Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
