The main differences between Blogs and Forums are:

- Forums are created for discussion between several people while Blogs are mainly designed for a single user input, with possibility for other people to comment.

So, Blogs are more like a simple homepage where other people may contribute with comments, but one person rules, blog owner, and blog owner can delete any comment he/she doesn't like. While, in forums, there could be thousands of people posting topic messages and also adding comments ...

When people try to use forums for the purpose of writing a journal, their messages get lost in the stream of messages, making it hard to follow the story.

Also, people tend to post many short messages inside forums, while blogs are more used for posting longer messages (on average).

CureZone Blogs have the option to post a comment on any and every Blog message, thus making a blog look like a discussion forum (every blog message becomes one little discussion forum).

Blog owner can choose whether or not to make comments visible to the public.
