In SharePoint 2010 Getting Started, author Simon Allardice walks through the first few hours a new user will spend with SharePoint working with Web sites, communities, content, and search. This course covers creating and using SharePoint sites, lists and libraries, how SharePoint streamlines teamwork, Office integration, and solutions for workflows and business intelligence.
If your system administrators have kept the Personalization features enabled, one of the abilities you'll have from your Profile page, or your My Content page, is to create a blog. If I go to My Content section here, it is going to say do you have any Recent Blog Post? Well, in my case no. But you can create one. Just click the link, and it will likely create a blog site for you. As you can immediately see, this is really another SharePoint site. By selecting the first default entry, I get this Edit button up here that will pop up a screen, allowing me to edit the content.
It's very straightforward to do this. Certainly that's what you want when you're working with a blog. You have the ability to add your own categories, if that makes sense. Or even in this case you can delete this individual item. So I have got any empty blog, so I can create a post. And as I am typing in the body here I do get this, the Rich Text Editor. So if I want to have things like Headings, I can do that. And it's fully supported inside the body of the blog. And I can create my own categories.
I can publish this. Whatever you do as a blog will be considered an activity, so it will show up in not only your own content, but it will show up as an activity for your colleague's Newsfeeds, so bear that in mind if you are starting to create them. The reason obviously for blogs within SharePoint is they're business-oriented. This is not about a public blog out there on the public Internet. It's purely an internal feature. Blog sites are quick to create and quick to use.
