You can use Microsoft Planner to track the writing and publishing process for articles and blog posts.

Create different buckets to see status:

"Working" for articles actively being written,

"Waiting for review" for articles being reviewed by a stakeholder,

"At risk" for tasks that need attention,

"Blocked" for tasks that can't be worked on by anyone,

And "Proposals" to capture ideas that your team doesn't have time to work on right now.

You can also use labels to track where each article is in the publishing process.

The "Creating and sharing lists" article is still in the "Outline" phase.

The other labels track the rest of the progress: Writing, In review, Final, and Published.

You can keep your articles in a SharePoint document library to share and collaborate on content.
