Instead of writing on Chazhound. I do not think she gets what this community is all about. SHe said bloggers visit each other's blog. I cannot possibly see it being the same. Besides I think we try to make a difference here for the greater good and that is by pooling together. I don't know how to explain it to her. There is no way I would change.

I don't think one is better than the other. Both mediums are very different. I maintain a knitting blog, and a blog on AlliePets. I use both to generate traffic - for my knitting patterns and for my business. I do make blogger friends on my blogs, but it's not quite the same.

I'm on Chaz here for the community and a much broader audience for questions, photos I post, etc. Yes I promote my business here, but it's the friends and community I'm here for that I feel you don't have when you blog.

Like I said, just different. :)

i agree...totally different things!!

If i had a blog, I'd have nothing to write about, lol. I like having so many peoples' ideas in one place...gets me thinking a lot (even if I dont respond) in ways I would never think about when reading a blog (since its just one person's brain).

I've never really looked into blogs, but to me, a forum like this is a community...

a blog is more of an independent thing.

I consider Chaz more like a family with strangers popping in from time to time . I miss some who have left ~~ either banned or on their own /.

IT's like a family to me too. As if your walking into a kitchen that is warm and inviting. Pull up a chair and a cup of tea. I learn so much from the people here. You all make me laugh, I care about your animals, I care about the people here, I make new friends. A blog just seems so not me. I know she is trying to help, but I wouldn't trade for anything. I only have so much time and energy to spend this way. I can't begin to imagine doing more than one forum but then again if your not a mod maybe you don't have to read a majority of the threads. Anyway I want to tell all of you how much I enjoy your company and thank you for the outpouring of love for Mary. Can't see that happening on a blog.

Blog makes me think more of an online diary that other people read and such. I use mine to keep track of stuff I do.

A forum is a dialogue; a blog is a monologue.
Heh, I think that sums it up:hail: I love being on forums, however not all forums are the same some (no matter how hard you try) just don't seem to click with you. I've been thinking about blogging.... but I'm not too sure yet! (which isn't to say I'll stop posting on forums.)

I've always thought of it like that, like a diary but less personal.

I don't do anything exciting enough to warrent a blog.. :rofl1: Noone wants to hear about my dull life, it would only bore and depress me typing out how mundane my life really is! LOL!

There are forums and there are blogs. I do both. They serve very different purposes. I go to forums for the community. My blog is just kind of there, with topics that I find interesting or experiences I want to share.
