Blog Post Themes

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

Monday: Interview with a Forum Ninja – We pick one contributor on MSDN and Technet Forums, write about their forum achievements (and also about their other achievements), and we interview them.

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Monday-Interview/

TuesdayFeatured Forum Post – We pick a forum post or forum thread on MSDN/TechNet Forums, and we write about the value of it. Examples:  https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Tuesday-FeaturedThread/  

Wednesday: Featured Forum  – We write about a Microsoft forum that we think is great, whether it's about a great technology, is an example of great collaboration and moderation, or simply features a lot of great answers or news-related posts.

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Wednesday-FeaturedForum/  

Thursday: Best Practices –  We write about a tool, feature, practice, or process on MSDN/TechNet Forums. Topics could be about navigating, editing, asking, answering, linking, languages, profile, forum features, or anything related to using the forums.

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Thursday-BestPractices/

Friday: International Spotlight– This is a post about International Forums news, including featuring a thread, forum, or group of forums in a non-English language. We'll look and see what's happening around the world!

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Friday-International/  

Saturday: Top Contributors of the Week– We will feature a list that highlights the top contributors each week.

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Saturday-TopContributors/  

Sunday: Surprise – Anything related to Microsoft forums. We won't always have a post on Sundays, but this allows us to have some flexibility.

Examples: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/forumninjas/tag/Sunday-Surprise/   


Acceptable Content

Blog entries must be about the MSDN and TechNet Forums. It's great to add a personal touch to the article, but the primary focus should be the Forums.
