    Do you think it is a good idea to add a blog on a forum or do you prefer to keep a forum and a blog separate? Why? Do you think it has any effect on the forum, good or bad?

    I do think it is a good idea to have them both.
    Some software might not be able to support them but it's always a good choice to separate good articles from forum discussions, so that they get quick exposure.
    I have heard this but linking from a blog to a forum, is good for SEO purposes too.
    P.S. As far as I know phbb software supports them:D

    It depends on what genre the forum is.

    If it's a webmaster or sports forum then it is a good idea to include a blog as topics like sports, administration, etc can be blogged on and interacts users. Though say a general chat forum, a blog with that would look quite ridiculous unless it's a good idea.

    I think it's a great idea to add a blog to your forum, In a way, it's logical. It will certainly give you more topics to discuss about.
