Blogging Vs Forum

I need to justify to clarify these both topics to make awareness of forum or blog which is very useful for us.


Compare both blogging and forum

Please discuss,................

Blogging should be write good content to your blog.

I hope forum is much different from blog because forum is like question and answer pattern but blog is not like that.

Blogging is content and comments based pattern which help us to share our ideas through writing the post in blog.

Some blogs can be used just like CMSs. So this is good.
But forums are a better way to keep your visitors around.
You can add a forum plugin to your WP blog to have both.

IMO, it sounds like you are looking for everyone to provide you information to complete a paper for school or something similar. Why don't you tell us what you know about these topics and then advise of your experience to date - that way you get better info to supplement what you may already know.

Forum is the best one to discuss between all of us and blog should have content and comments but I like forum post and replies. Because it is easy and memorable one.

Yes, its true basically Forums is used to share the view between different peoples and share the information but in the Blogs you can share your own personal views, information/content which you want to show other peoples

Blogging is more of writing content whereas the blogger picks the topic. A forum is more of a place of discussion. Anyone can pick a topic and get involved in the discussion.

Blogging on first place is the way of giving interesting stuffs, information, or awareness to a certain subject. Blogging can come in many ways as it depends on the choice of the writer. It can also lead to a good conversation if a blogger manage to put up a good content to his/her blog that people would start giving their thoughts and reaction about the topic.

Forum on the other hand, a platform where most people that share the same interest meet. Be it SEO, real estate, money making, etc. These platforms are built for information sharing, conversation, money making or anything that a certain forum site would offer.

In terms of their value, I think it depends on the contents that have been discussed in both forum and blogs.

Both blogging and forum are used to share knowledge. But I would prefer that blogging is better than a forum as blogs concentrate on certain topics and forums are places where we discuss things out. But forum also has its importance in sharing knowledge in every topic.

Today blogs are considered as online industry. In blogs we can write guest post and can check the popularity of post by comments whereas in forums we can post a thread and make discussion on that thread

Blogs and Forums are great for driving traffic, and providing value.

Blogs are good for branding while forums aren't so much.

Blogs and forums are great for building relationships and being look at as a source.

Blogs and Forums are just simply amazing!

Make the most of both...
That's it for now
Buh Bye,

They are different. To express yourself in the internet, blog is the right tool for you. If you want to participate in discussions that can sometimes turn into debates, you'll need to join in a forum community

If already have a good team [ at least 5-6 friends/partners ]. Then you should go for blog instead of forums as multiple authors can create really quality content with help of each other where forum is little headache at starting, once you are started with forums it's like automated content generator. Basically, you do need to provide some kind of free service in order to get huge traffic where blog only need your knowledge/content.

I personally prefer Blogging over forum.
Because blogging provides better control over your content.
Forum is not bad, but I just don't like it as much as blogging.

I'm not a blogger, but a regular reader of many different blogs. The appeal of blog is in a structured opinions and design behind it. Forum is better when one needs opinion of several different people.

Less effort posting on a forum than a blog, yes.

Running a forum vs running a blog, the forum is the harder one.
