TNWIKI – Wiki Life – What is the TechNet Wiki blog?

Hello Community!

Today is Wiki Life and I'll talk about the Blog for TechNet Wiki (Wiki Ninjas)! The Wiki Ninja Blog's mission is to evangelize the Technet Community through articles written by authors passionate about technology, promote the TechNet Wiki, blog about other Microsoft's TechNet pages and all matters associated with Microsoft technologies!

Our blog, and when I say us, I include the whole community :), is well structured and has a team at the first line to help keep the community updated with useful information from day to day in the IT and Dev fields.

- Structure of the Blog

Our blog is well structured, divided by daily affairs (a different blog type each day of the week), publications are schedule, advice is given to each other, they are published in more than one language, they help the community, and we maintain an organized manner for all our content.

- Schedules

Schedules are published and updated daily by the members, stating the dates of the posts and responsible for each publication. If you want to know more, see the Schedule Brazil, Turkey, and the International (English) Agenda Schedule.

Schedules per language:

- Blog Posts Theme

MondayCommunity Interview – We pick one person on TechNet Wiki, write about their Wiki achievements (and also about their other achievements), and we interview them You'll also see a few video interviews in this series Examples: 

TuesdayArticle Spotlight - We pick an article (or series of articles) on TechNet Wiki and write about the value of it. Examples: 

WednesdayWiki Life – We write about a tool, feature, practice, or process on TechNet Wiki. Top could be about navigating, editing, authoring, linking, languages, profile tools, the Translation Widget, or where the Wiki is mentioned in the world (like on other sites). Examples: 

ThursdayCouncil Spotlight– On Thursdays, we write about the projects that our Community Council is currently working on... The Featured Article Teams, Wiki Feature Requests and Bug Fixes, expanding Portals or Cross-Linking, the TechNet Guru contest (which connects the Forums and Wiki), the Wiki Ninja Belt Ranks, Governance and Guidelines, etc. Either someone who is on the council will post on what they're doing, or one of our authors will take a more journalistic approach, documenting the progress that they observe... or an opinion-style post where they brainstorm on what they think is possible. Examples:   

FridayInternational Spotlight – This is a digest of International Wiki news, community wins, profiles, articles, and/or top contributors in the International space. We want to focus on Non-English spotlights, since the other days focus more on English. Examples:

    Very interesting and informative!

    >> Information about the Wiki Ninjas Blogs doesn’t reach the whole right audience, I will use my own example. unfortunately, some of the blogs, I only read after two weeks if any, instead of reading at the day its publish.

    >> please read this thread and add comments(you can say that this is bad idea as well), I was sure that at this time, it will get much more support, but there is no response yet. the basic idea is:
    Should be a page or group on Facebook for Wiki Ninjas

  6. Saeid Hasani says:

    Ronen, Great idea! I voted for it 🙂

  7. Pituach,

    Well, you can subscribe to the blog! =^)

    You know, starting a Facebook page has been on our council’s list for over a year now.

    See the third bullet on #10:

    I’ve been waiting for a council member who is super passionate about it and has the vision to lead it.

    After you have 20 articles, 100 wiki edits, 30 wiki comments, 30 blog comments, and an interview with a Wiki Ninja, you can be invited to join us on this blog. When you have 30 articles and were invited to the blog, you can be invited to join the council.
