Cannot publish posts in my msdn blog RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a question regarding msdn blog. I didn't find any better forum/support to ask - please let me know if I should turn elsewhere.

    I have my msdn blog https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jankrivanek where I post from time to time.

    However recently when I tried to create blog post I didn't have option to 'Publish' to post, only 'Submit for Review'. Such a post shows as 'Pending' in my msdn blog managemenet portal; however I have no option to publish it myself.

    Where and how can I again ask for publish right?

    Thanks

  • Jan,

    It looks like you were a Microsoft employee in the past. Your last blog post was in December, 2013. At present your profile indicates you are a partner. As Dave noted, only Microsoft employees can post blogs, except in a few cases where others are invited to blog by Microsoft employees.

  • As far as I know only Microsoft employees can create MSDN blogs but as an end user you can create a TechNet Wiki

  • Thank you guys!

    I was able to publish new posts, answer and moderate questions even quite some time after leaving (I guess till moving to wordpress).

    What confused me was that I was still able to fully create and review new post, till the point where I found myslef not able to publish it. A bit frustrating.

    I'll try to contact some old contacts to see if posting to msdn is helpful or if I should migrate elsewhere.  

    Regards
