Note: There is a portion of the video at the end where we are validating a deployment of the blog, and we ran into an error with the blog listing not publishing. After some investigation, we found this was due to the Sandbox being on an older version of Agility.Web that does not play nice with Azure App Service on multiple instances. This just happened to be the day we scaled up to multiple instances ;)
