SharePoint: Collaborate via a Blog

Creating a team communication space.

Blog provide a very efficient method for teams to collaborate on ideas.

To illustrate this tool, I’ll begin by creating a blog using the Site->Actions menu.

I’m given the ability to name my new blog, provide a web address, as well as more options which I won’t use for this article.

Now, I have a brand new blog where I and team members may collaborate on our team project.

This blog provides some great features such as a calendar icon for each post denoting when it was created.
Also, our blog site provides us with the ability to create a helpful “About this blog” section.
When users need to locate past postings, they may use months listed under the “Archives” section.

Now, I will create a new blog post by selecting “Create new post.”

As you can see, I have the ability to provide rich text within my blog posts.

Also, I may use Microsoft Word to create blog post for a much more intuitive interface.
