    It depends on how you are going to be using them OP. If its a blog I would stick to a sub-page. Can you give us more information on how you will be using them?

    I would stick with sub-pages i.e. mainsite.com/blog/ & mainsite.com/forum/. Years ago it was best practice / common to have these on sub-domains but changes in Google made everyone re-think that strategy. Although I believe some authority is passed to sub-domains it's not as much as it does to sub-pages. This is just my findings.
