Blog Content Directions

Over the weekend, I had a chance to think about what content to put on this UX blog. I want to hear your feedback on what's interesting to you and how we can better share Microsoft UX experience on the blog.

Here are my possible content categories:

  • Information/Resource: provide links to design method articles, UX related technologies and detailed product tutorials, digital asset libraries, etc.
  • Event reports: announce UX conferences, design camps, group meetings, etc. We will share our experience after attending these events through podcasting, pictures, and documents.
  • Mini-tutorials on upcoming designer tools: as we get our hands dirty with the Microsoft Expression Studio, we will capture our learning and create mini-tutorials to share with the community - a tips and tricks corner. 
  • Design stories: collect and share design stories from the UX community with a focus on the design process.
  • Interviews: interview UX experts to talk about their best practices and wisdom.
  • General contents: general thoughts about user experience that do not belong to any of the previous categories. For example, what does a User Experience Advisor do at Microsoft? A lot of people has asked me the question. 🙂

So, what do you think?.... and do you have any stories/experiences you want to share?

    Hey Qixing,

    I would personally be very interested in the mini-tutorials and any other ways your blog can highlight what the Expression Studio can do for me as a UX designer.

    As I’m sure you’re aware, there are many interesting UX tools out there on the market, and, as a busy practitioner, I don’t necessarily have the time to test drive all of them in my work.

    So, anything you can do to convince people like me that trying out the Expression tools is worth it on our part, is time well spent on your part. 🙂

  2. Expression tools mini-tutorials sounds Great!!!
