Council Spotlight – Did you know we have a Wiki Ninja Blog Authoring Schedule?

Yeah. Totally. We have one.

Here it is:

Wiki Ninjas Blog Authoring Schedule                                


We used to put all the former schedules on that page, but there were so many that it was taking longer to load the page and the edits when we updated the schedule!


So Peter Geelen made this page:

Wiki Ninjas Blog Authoring Schedule Archive


Anyway, XAML guy has helped a ton in the past to keep us going on the schedule.

Lately Durval has been helping tremendously with that.


So big thanks to XAML guy and Durval!


And I'll end with a reminder of what the different posts are like on this blog (mostly because it's on the Wiki page and it reminded me that we should remind you what the schedule is):


Blog Post Themes

Here is the list of the corresponding themes for each day of the week:


Monday:Community 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:


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


Wednesday:Wiki 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: 


Thursday:Council 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: 


Friday:International 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: 


Saturday:Top Contributors of the Week – We will feature a list that highlights the top contributors each week. Join us as the community earns their Wiki Ninja awards Examples: 


Sunday:Surprise Anything related to TechNet Wiki We won’t always have a post on Sundays, but this allows us to have some flexibility. Examples:


As Needed:Wiki Ninja News – When there are any Wiki-related events, promotions, or any other news.


TechNet Guru - We post about the TechNet Guru contest, including listing the winners, giving updates, and featuring each winning article. Examples:



So you can go check out the schedule here sometimes to see who's going to post when:
