Of course this very post is part of a forum.

Forums are useful for many-to-many communications and discussions. They can be thought of as similar to a town meeting. Many discussions can be conducted at the same time, and the information can flow equally in both directions from the original posters and the readers, who themselves become posters when they reply to the original post.

Blogs, on the other hand, are useful for one-to-many communications and can be thought of as similar to newspaper columns. See the blogs section for further information.
