I’m a bit addicted to starting web sites. While WordPress is my go to software, I’ve been leaning towards forum software recently.
While I like the idea of blogging because I can put pretty much whatever I want online, I can do the same with a forum. And a forum has the advantage that other people can start conversations as well. Blog commenting is cool, but there’s no way for a visitor to start a conversation on a blog.
The other side though is that a forum with just one lone geek posting away is sort of sad where with a blog it’s a bit expected.
Any downsides to starting a forum and just treating it like a blog? Posting away without worrying about anybody signing up and treating anyone that does as a bonus.
