That very much depends on you and your site.

If you add a blog, you need to update it regularly. That doesn’t necessarily mean frequently. You could write a post once a month, if that’s all you can manage. Just make sure your readers know how often to expect new content, so they don’t check back too frequently and then give up because they see nothing new.

So if you decide to add a blog, you need to be sure you will be able to add new, unique and relevant content periodically.

A forum is probably even more work. First of all, you need to decide what kinds of areas your forum discussions will cover. Do you think you have enough regular, active visitors to your site from which to draw participants? If you don’t have people participating, you won’t have any content to draw in new members. So getting started will take time and effort, and if your forum does become successful, then you will need to moderate it, to prevent it filling up with Spam and other undesirable content.

Neither of these is a “quick fix” solution. Only you can decide whether you feel one of them would be worth the work you would need to put in.


oh… i guess currently the blog is a better choice.
Thank you for your time very much appreciate your help.
