At first glance the article looked very well written but once I read linked TechNet article I realized its straight copy of it. Why not just link and leave it to reader, or write something of your own?

Bhargav Shukla,

I have 2 sections in this blog. – Which is linked to the home page of this site. This blog is dedicated for my own blogs are articles. – As the name sounds “News and Views” , this blog is dedicated for news and updates from external sources like TechNet, Microsoft etc.

I always use “Source” and “Read more at source” keywords in these blogs to give appropriate credit to the original owner (or originating source). That way a normal user can understand this is from an external source not directly from me!
