Setting up your OTN blog
By OTN ArchBeat on Jul 05, 2008
In the last couple of days I have responded to several emails from Oracle-acquired BEA people who noticed that this blog is now live, and want to set up their own OTN blogs. In the hope that I can head off any more such messages, here's what you have to do:
- Go to blogs.oracle.com
- Click Sign In
- Click Activate my account (in the New to blogs.oracle section)
- Complete and submit the form. You will be notified by email when your account is activated. Then...
- Repeat Steps 1 and 2.
- Click Request a new blog
- Complete and submit the form. You will be notified by email when your blog is ready.
Once your blog is ready you'll probably want to spend some time tweaking the About section and other modules. There's a lot of information in this FAQ.
Note: Only Oracle employees are eligible for OTN blogs. However, OTN has an extensive list of non-employee blogs, so those who are now or plan to blog on relevant topics are welcome to add their blogs to the list available on the OTN Wiki.
For those interested in migrating content from their BEA blogs, I've documented a process that uses Windows Live Writer. As you can see, I'm in the process of migrating and updating some of my old stuff.
