The Pros of Having Discussions With Blogs
-----------------------------------------
(Instead of Forums)

No matter what topic, all your blog posts [your thoughts] are in one place. Should you choose to make your blog post public, others can reply and add their own thoughts. Discussions evolve around blog posts, around a person, rather than a topic specific forum on a website.

Your identity online as a forum user is flat, topic-specific and one-dimensional. Your identity online as a blogger is intelligent, multi-dimensional, and human. Your personality shows up in the gestalt of your blog posts that cover a myriad of topics, from the mundane and personal, to the sacred and political.

You can create groups for bloggers around a topic that is of interest to you and your community, such as "recipes" or "integral theory."
