About BlogMS - Team Blogs at Microsoft (updated)


My name is Daniel Good, I am a Technical Account Manager working within Premier Support in the Microsoft Services organization.

I've spent a few hours searching the web and Microsoft websites (including the Windows Experience Blog and Tom Bishops Microsoft Blog), to pull together this comprehensive list of resources. I hope you find it valuable. One thing for sure it makes my day-job a bit easier!

I started the BlogMS in May 2008 in response to customers who wanted to feel closer to the product groups. The overall goal was to improve satisfaction levels among our customers and partners.

From this site you will be able to receive regular weekly and monthly updates from product, support and other specialist teams within Microsoft - over 130 blogs in total !

Each week and calendar month a full summary of all the latest articles will be aggregated onto a single post on this site for you to review quickly and with ease. A report will also be attached which you can download with the same information.

You will also be able to find a definitive directory of blogs for these teams. Announcements for additions or removals will be made through individual posts.

Historically finding and keeping up to date with all the Microsoft teams has been a challenge. I hope you find this new resource valuable saving you both time and energy, and most importantly keeping you up to date with the wide-range of activities and announcements.

Once you have identified articles of interest from a particular team - don't forget you can subscribe to RSS syndication feeds directly for that blog, or bookmark your favourite site.

This blog site is focused on Microsoft team blogs. It currently does not include Microsoft individual employee or community based blogs. The value of these is well recognised within the community, however adding all of these would become overwhelming very quickly. A full directory of all Microsoft blogs can be found on the following website http://www.microsoft.com/communities/

If you want to know more about Premier Support, my job at Microsoft, or just want to get in touch, feel free to use the contact form: Feel free to also have a look at my My Profile hosted on LinkedIn.

Take care of yourself and each other,
All the best, Daniel
