Most organisations use internal web portals for online collaboration nowadays.
Usually with Microsoft SharePoint thanks to the seamless integration with the Office-suite.
SharePoint really rocks. Like simultaneously editing Word-docs with multiple authors in real-time. In addition, SharePoint excels in myriads of functionality for office productivity. Puns intended obviously.
Blogging with SharePoint as underlying platform, however, isn’t particularly the strongest combo from my point of view. Maybe you disagree if you’re a SharePoint developer. That’s fine by me. Seriously. I simply prefer my personal blogging freedom here with WordPress and tons of responsive, kick-ass plugins. But yeah, yours truly also publishes posts on the SharePoint portal of my employer when it concerns content for staff only.
Recently, my internal blog somehow started to require content approval. Probably after I’ve changed permissions to allow comments for all future posts (which should be the default setting by design if you’d ask me). If your SharePoint blog miraculously requires content approval too, here’s how you can approve your pending posts yourself. Followed by the instructions how to disable this approval workflow altogether. Or watch the short instruction video (just 1 minute).
