There is an interesting discussion going in the latest Mike’s blog entry Jigs and Suggestions about what is a good place to place specific posts – blog or forums. I hope that projects are clear. Here is my view on tihs issue:
- blog entry – if you’re writing about your own experience you should post it to your blog. This includes posts like project progress logs, tips, suggestions and I also think that any kind of review fits perfectly here.
- forum topic – forums should be primarily used for asking the questions and requesting help. Each forum has its own description that is useful when deciding which one of the forums is right for the post.
Quote Obi: I have a Lumberjocks.com link on my browser and it brings me right to the pulse, so I can see what’s at the top of the list. I don’t blog because blogs get lost in the shuffle whereas the forum would always come back to the top of the list as soon as you replied to it.
Obi, blog entries also come back to the top as soon as they are commented . So forum topics and blog entries have the equal weight in the Pulse.
Quote Dick: Better yet, How about a FAQ section for help.
Good idea. Anybody interested in helping me with this? ;)
