    Hei,


    Recently I have see a lot of "journal" type of threads. You know, the ones like RichUsers "journey to riches" etc.Some of them are real cool, so I am not dissing them what so ever. I think they are actually helpful and inspiring to many.

    What do you think of having like a section where people can start their journeys/chronicles. Kind of like a mini blog or something like that.


    It could be called BHW Chronicles or something like that ;)


    What are your thoughts?

    Agreed! I've been thinking about this too and it would be nice to have some kind of journal section.

    Yea, I want to start one of these public journals myself. I want to consistently earn $3,000 a month by augest 1st. Doable? I support a new section for this as I don't want to post it in the making money section where methods belong

    Agreed - a section for this makes sense. Could also be used for a motivation by the creator - to push it a bit more - for others to actually DO something.

    Great idea - got my vote.

    Invision Power Board had a great blogs type plugin, I don't know about the current forum solution here, but maybe. I can tell you it really does keep you motivated to do that.

    Yeah,

    like I went through some threads now, and saw that there are so many of these kind of threads :) Which is cool, but they tend to be in money making section. In my mind that section has always been about money making methods though :)

    How do we bring this to the attention of the mods (im sure they've probably already seen it). I don't want to contribute to the cluttering of making money section. I say keep that section method specific.

    Well, the mods are all seeing and allpresent, so I would not worry about trying to contact them about it. I am sure if they think that this is useful idea they will implement it :)

    i come in here just to start a thread about the same idea , only to see it has been suggested so i am also casting my support for this. Mainly because i don't want 10 "my journal" posts in the first page of make money section with due respect to all the authors.

    Yeah,

    So maybe it could be like a "introduction" section that doesnt really show up in the home page.. Maybe it does, but I was under impression that it doesnt.

    What do rest of you think?

    Here are 3 other threads suggesting the same really:

    Why not use the blog plugin for vBulletin? So each user can have a journal and those who wants to read it can read the blog? And we don't have to have like 20+ journal threads at the frontpage (I think they are awesome, but there are sometimes to many of them ;3 )

    Indeed, a lot of journeys lately and always fun to read and to inspire.

    Good idea to keep them at one place to keep the other sections cleaner.

    I agree with this suggestion.

    However I believe that BHW should take advantage of the vBulletin blog software.

    Why?

    It will benefit BHW.

    - It would keep the forums a lot cleaner.

    - Many BHW members would use the blogs quite well. What this would do is create tons of pages that are keyword rich. This would benefit BHW's SEO quite a lot more.

    Also the blog software is pretty awesome :) has a lot of the same features as Wordpress. A part from Theme and Plugin usage.

    Just my 2c :)
