SharePoint MySites are a great way for employees to have their own personal micro site for storing documents, notes and other information about them selves. For the more adventurous employees through, they are also able to publish their own blogs there for the other employees in the company to follow. These could be knowledge base articles, trials and tribulations with customers or vendors, or just fun stories. The good thing about these blogs are that they are only visible to the internal employees, and also it is a good way for companies to capitalize on today’s social media frenzy.

In this quick walkthrough I will show how you users are able to set up a blog and start posting in a matter of minutes.
