It seems like some spaces have discussions and Blogs, but I can't figure out how to find out which communities have blogs. It would helpful if there was directory or some way to easily scan through all of the blogs so that we could decide which ones we would like to Favorite

We haven't got blog activated for all communities, right now Sharepoint, Skype for Business, and the Microsoft Tech Summit are the only communities/events that have a blog.  We only activate blogs once the first blog article is posted.  An empty blog is not the best experience.

Thanks, i guess I wasn't very clear. The fact that only a few communities have blogs makes having some kind of directory or dedicated search capability all the more important. We should not have to manually open every community just to see if it has a blog that we may want to read, there needs to be any easier way to get to them.

Agreed!  As you would have noted in my Oct 16 Community post we have a lot of UI/UX changes planned.  We need to look at these holistically and think about the overall experience.  Blog discoverability is just one of those things.  Minimizing the number of clicks to find things is another.  Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback.
