Just spoke to my girlfriend on the phone (interesting info, Grover ) and I explained to her which plans I had with a new to build community platform. So I talked about webforums and blogs and all of that and then she asked *the* question:
What is the difference between Blogs (which you can comment on ~Ed.) and Forums?
To my horror , I wasn't able to explain it. Said something like: 'hmrlll (<--- this was a key phrase)... forums are meant to be discussions and the focus of a blog is more on the article itself, where people can comment on, but not to delve so much into discussion'.
I mean, come on !
So, who helps me out on this? When you look at vBulletin for example you have integrated blogs. What is the big difference between posting a blog where people can comment on or posting a thread where people can comment on? I find myself asking this very question still to myself as well, also because the Blogs on my vB3.8 powered website are not much of a success, to say the least.
I need enlightenment.
