The system on which the TechNet and MSDN blogs run is in the process of being upgraded. With this upgrade comes lots of new features, and new ways for us to engage with you, and for you to track and view the blogs.

For more information about this migration, see Sean Jenkin’s blog. Sean is the PM for the TechNet and MSDN blogs, and is posting information about the new features and the status of the update…
Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for a new look and new features… :D
