Note-to-self: Find articles you published on Technet Wiki + RSS feed (#TNWIKI, repost)

It can be pretty useful to get an overview of the articles you published on  Technet Wiki.

First and best option is to search the TN Wiki for articles you created.

Go to the TNWiki site, and search for: site:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/ “First published by <your user name>”
Then you’ll see a RSS link, that you can use to read the RSS feed.

For example: Search Technet Wiki with my name (only the originally authored articles)
 http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Search/en-US?query=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2Fwiki%2F%20%22First%20published%20by%20Peter%20Geelen%22&refinement=90&beta=0&ac=4

The RSS feed for this search is then: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/search/en-US/feed?query=site%3ahttp%3a%2f%2fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2fwiki%2f%20%22First%20published%20by%20Peter%20Geelen%22&format=RSS&refinement=90

The advantage of this search is, that it still works even if you changed your  profile or user name.

Another option: tag your articles with a specific tag and use the feed. Disadvantage of this method is you might not find all your articles in case you did not tag all articles.
To get the list of articles, use the tag search like http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/<yourtag>/default.aspx

The related RSS feed is : http://social.technet.microsoft.com/search/en-US/feed?query=<yourtag>&refinement=90

For example, searching with my tag: pgtag
Result: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/tags/pgtag/default.aspx

Another option is direct search your favorite search engine like Bing for it, searching the source site (TNWIKI) and your name. Let me provide you with some examples, which you can customize very  easily to fullfil your needs.

Using Bing, search for : site:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/ “First published by Peter Geelen”

Result: http://be.bing.com/search?q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2Fwiki%2F+%22First+published+by+Peter+Geelen%22&qs=n&form=QBRE&filt=all&pq=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2Fwiki%2F+%22first+published+by+peter+geelen%22&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk=

This search is available as RSS Feed like (notice the format:rss tag in the URL):  http://be.bing.com/search?format=rss&q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2Fwiki%2F+%22First+published+by+Peter+Geelen%22&qs=n&form=QBRE&filt=all&pq=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fsocial.technet.microsoft.com%2Fwiki%2F+%22first+published+by+peter+geelen%22&sc=0-0&sp=-1&sk=
