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 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.
