can I have my personal blog to share knowledge in Bentley communities?
Thank you for your interest. While this should be possible, it may be difficult for other users to find your information. For example if a search is initiated from within a particular product community, it will search within that product community only, unless the user specifically chooses to search the entire Bentley Communities Site.
May I ask what type of information you would like to share? Are you interested in writing articles about a particular Bentley product? Would you consider yourself a power user? There is potential for adding "guest" bloggers to a product community blog.

I'd like to share common issues I've been running into and solutions I found, here are a few examples...
a. how to publish mobile i-models with all app-specific & mws-specific intelligence retained for Navigator CE
b. how to build microstation sdk examples with Win 10 & Visual Studio 2017 community installed (it doesn't work out of box)
c. how to speed up managed workspace performance
Thanks, Mark. That is great that you would like to share some best practices. It might be best to include such content along with all the other support solutions (wiki articles) within the respective product community Wiki, for the best chances of other users finding the content. I will discuss this with my colleagues and get back to you. In the meantime, here is a Peer Blog for you: Mark Gao's Blog
Just to be sure I understand, your content would be for Navigator and MicroStation? Have you taken a look at the MicroStation and Content Management/Publishing Wikis to make sure there aren't any existing articles to address the things you intended to write about? (though I understand you might have a different angle to write about)
the topics I'm going to cover will include the following
Bentley automation server
for the above example topics, I did search up everything but couldn't find the exact solution I need
Out of habit I still use the old Peer Blog area, should we be moving away from this?
