Maybe that could be a workaround for you: create a e-mail distribution list with all e-mail adresses of your collegues (often a company have this) and share your blogpost with this e-mail.

Create a page called "Latest News" or something. Make everyone a watcher. Whenever you want them to get notified that a new blog post has been made, update the Latest News page with a link to the new blog post.

This means only having to add everyone to a watchlist once.

Hi Maksim,

Since you are already aware about how to make yourself a watcher, I can think of 2 more ways where you can notify everybody on new post:

1) Subscribing to Email Notifications of Updates to Confluence Content (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Subscribing+to+Email+Notifications+of+Updates+to+Confluence+Content)

2) Using the RSS Feed Builder (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Using+the+RSS+Feed+Builder)

However, both of these method actually involves the people in your organization to follow a standard practices. Say for Number 1 option, maybe you can share a screen shot with everyone on which space that they would like to be updated.

For number 2 option, you may want to give a sample of how the RSS feed is built and then share it out with everyone.

You shure there is no other way to do it?

I can manage space with "Manage watchers" feature, but that means if i got atleast 200 people in my confluense and 10 spaces - that i need to add a user 2000 times (i can't use groups within "manage watchers feature" it's unavilable, and all will recieve notifications if main page changes).

I doubt that all of them would like to spend their time to add themselves to all my spaces, as well...
But thanks for an answer.
