Firstly, we will like to define the two concepts being compared here.

  • What is a Forum?

A forum is a gathering for the purpose of discussion. In essence a forum is a website organized and coordinated for the purpose of discussion. 

  • What is a Blog?

A blog is a website that allows users to reflect, share opinions, and discuss various topics in form of an online journal, sometimes letting readers comment on their posts. Most blog are written slightly in an informal tone (personal, journals, news, businesses, etc.) Entries (also known as postings) typically appear in reverse chronological order.

The following are the reasons why a forum is far more better than a blogging site
  • Firstly, a forum as a community allow all registered members (by default) to post and comment (reply) Shy : here in, the members of the forum have the privilege (by default) to post threads or publish posts and comment or reply to threads created by other users on the forum. 
  • All registered members have a personal profile which contains the contact and details of the bearer. This can make it easier for users or visitors to be able to contact the poster. With this a forum will build a community: community building is a fantastic tool to swap ideas, create meaningful relationships within overlapping industries and create a sense of belonging.

  • Majority of forums have a messaging and mailing module installed on the forum which members of the forum can use to communicate. Communication, surely will make user-administrator relationship stronger.
  • Interaction between the administrator and other users of the forum will expose the forum administrator to what is needed to make the forum unique from any other. Visitors “who get what, when and how” will be identified easily by the administrator. In essence a forum is a great research tool.
  • Also, writing for blogs may not make a user popular as writing for a forum. Because at the end when writing for a blogging site, your post may not be trackbacked or linked to you, but in a forum, you have the opportunity to do that yourself without seeking anybody help after registering.
