    Forum and Blog Hosts?
    Hey Everyone this is not so much an affiliate marketing related question, but I thought you all would be the most knowledgeable on this issue.

    I am coaching a peewee Lacrosse team over here in NY, and I want to start a website for the guys on the team. I want to include a blog and/or a forum where the boys can keep up with everything.

    Who would you suggest setting up the forum and blog with?

    Thanks for any help on this topic.

    BTW I have been looking at type pad and fat cow so far any other suggestions would be helpful.

    Free blog is not good, your blog can be deleted without noticed.

    Adam, look into WordPress for the blog. I rolled my own, but did try WordPress once and found it to be advanced in functionality but very simple to use.

    It just depends on what you're trying to do. A blog works well if you just want them to have access to information. If you want them to have the ability to chat with each other then you'd definitely want message board software. phpBB is free, and while some people don't like it I've used it almost since it's inception (many years) and have never had any problems. If you want to shell out some cash you can use vBulletin or IPB. Although IPB might still have a free version, I'm not sure.

    If you went with a message board, depending on the information you needed to pass off, then a blog might not be necessary. You could just set up a forum on the board for announcements and such.
