    blog or forum

    I am setting up a small family web site and I am interested in a blogs/forum. I not used either on my web sites before and research doesn't tell me what the differences are (if any).

    So my question is: does blogs and forums provide the same service or is there a reason to have both on one web site?

    Hiya,

    a blog is short for Weblog and is more of an online-diary than anything else.

    A forum (or Board, more properly) is a full-blown dicussion system, with users, permissions, fora, etc

    As an example, this Board you are writing on. Its a Board, or Forum.

    A weblog is more like http://worldtrip.somepeople.net
