Just click on the blue Blog Tab, & then click on add new entry.
Then Type away.

Well… not really. The forums are for posting questions to other members or if you have a specific topic you’d like to discuss with others. This is a great example – using the forum to ask about blogs!

Your blog should be treated differently. It is as much for your own personal reference as it is for others to read. Use it to keep an on-going progress journal of a project, where you can write down your challenges and maybe the techniques you’ve tried. In the future, if you find yourself in a similar situation, you can go back to your blog to see what you’ve done in the past and repeat it (if it worked out well) or try something new (if it didn’t work the first time).

Lots of guys use their blog to make daily or weekly notes on their woodworking life in general – just as a way of documenting it for themselves (or posterity?).

But forums and blogs shouldn’t be treated as the same thing, because they aren’t. They’re similar, don’t get me wrong, but… (to put it in a woodworker’s context) it’s like saying shellac is the same as lacquer. There are similarities, but there are also definitely some differences, as well.
