Hi BHW, I have a decision to make and not an easy one. I have a web site for an affiliate network I setup. The network isn't doing so good (because it needs staff that funding never went through to pay for). The site is beautiful and it has a blog. The blog has many people signing up each day (wordpress). The domain name is awesome as well for affiliate marketing. Rather than let the site sit as an affiliate network I think it would be prudent to turn the main site into either the blog or a forum. A forum is obviously more work. Of course if I'm writing content for a blog I could just as easily make forum posts rather than blog posts. My fear in doing that is that a forum might fail whereas the blog's userbase is already in a constant expanse. Then there's the possibility of having a blog and a forum on the same site. I know vbulletin has both a blogging and forum script in one. Any thoughts?
