What's the difference between a blog and a forum?
People often ask what is the difference between a blog and a forum. They are quite different. A blog is a website journal or discussion consisting of posts typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first. On the other hand, an internet forum is like a message board or an online discussion, where people can hold conversations in the form of posts.
When we create a blog for you, we will ensure it is professionally designed in such a way so as to convey the message you intend.
We will help you understand the fundamental basics of blogging - which ultimately is all about engaging your ideal reader and target audience. Apart from incorporating all the required components for you blog (such as social media sharing buttons, displaying popular and latest posts), we will provide training for creating screen friendly content - because writing for the web is quite different to writing for print media! The main reason for this is because people tend to scan content on the web, so writing your content succinctly and in bite sizes keeps your audience engaged.
Forums are a great way to add social interactivity to your website. The main diffence forums have to blogs is in that they enable your visitors to your website to add to the conversation with a reply of their own. With a good forum, you can commence and lead a discussion without being online all the time - attracting a visitors to your site and thus improving a site's popularity.
As with blogs and everything else on your website, quality content is paramount. When starting your forum, we encourage you to think like your visitors would. Consider what it is that will make your forum unique - and then write engaging posts to start lively discussions!
