How to become an MVP?
thanks, but then how are your selected?
In simple terms, just concentrate on the community contributions from your side such as answering questions in the forums/newsgroups or posting blogs from your experience. There is no time-frame or length of time you need to continue in order to get selected for a consideration as MVP.
Lucky that this programme has been revamped with new criteria & every quarter cycle since last 2 years and current MVPs can propse one.
So work and luck favours in order to get selected as MVP.
are there any specific forums that they look for.? or any specific blog. Can i post on my blog?
None I should say, for instance your participation with answers here also counts towards contritbutions and if your time permits you could go through MSDN forums as well.
And, there is nice blog about how you cannot to become a MVP at http://welasharp.net/default.aspx?ccid=cat025
Good one 
I can add two others things to that article:
1) Keep young. 40 years old or less.
2) Don't ever never born in Central or Sud-America or 3rd countries.
<P mce_keep="true">I don't agree Luis, none of them would affect or stop you becoming for this stature. <P mce_keep="true">There are many professionals and knowledgeable folks out there who are not a MVP yet or their contributions are going un-noticed. <P mce_keep="true">[quote user="Luis Martin"] <P> I can add two others things to that article:</P><P>1) Keep young. 40 years old or less.</P><P>2) Don't ever never born in Central or Sud-America or 3rd countries.<IMG alt="Stick out tongue" src="http://sql-server-performance.com/Community/emoticons/emotion-4.gif"><BR> </P>[/quote]
It was a joke Satya.
One case is not enough.
