Can anyone explain to me the difference between blogs and forum? To me they both sound like the same thing. But I guess there is a difference.

Blogs center on the author's ideas, though people could still comment but the topics would be based on the owner's ideas. It's a good way to express yourself though. It's something personal, like a diary, only people get to read them. On the other had, forums are not one-way. It's not based on a particular person, anyone could open a topic and anyone could comment and react. MyLot is a sample of a forum, though this isn't the usual forum. A usual forum is like http://www.tsinoy.com/forum =)
