I try to cater to my users "wants". I agree nobody reads blogs, but some like to write them. I'd rather they blog on my site than somewhere else. One stop shopping. I could do without it. Still need some sort of "article" section though. I like that XenForo is taking a fresh look at things. I'm trying to quit looking at what things I want and look more at what my users want to do. They want to interact/converse, they want to read/write stories and news, they want to write about themselves, they want to post/look at pictures. The traditional answer are Forum/CMS/Blogs/Albums. Might be the time to re-think everything.
