    Default Will you blog if we ...

    Hello,

    I wonder whether you will start your own blog or not, if we open a new site to host java related blogs. Its interface will be similar to Blogger of Google. So you will create an account there and start blogging immediately. You will have chance to use your own template and other features like an easy to use editor ...

    I just want to create this site if i believe people will use it.

    Default most people like it

    It is a great idea, wildly popular. I just don't use them becuase they run bulky. I do not see any reason why we have to have the whole page moving around underneath us.

    They are everywhere, very common. Their popularity is so much so that televison networks now feed from blogs. Wild, unprecedneted. I will probably be the only person that votes no.

    I too agree with him all the posts some are hidden after long where forums are not like that and the discussion also goes well here

    I'm yet one more for no.... sorry Java Tip. Personally, I'm not a big fan of them either... I prefer the active and flowing dialog we have here in the forums. There's more of a communal spirit that runs here - anyone can read a wide range of things and their posts can be seen by many... but in a blog, one person gets their own setup but it can't be guaranteed to be read as much as forums can... dunno, not sure if I'm making myself clear... but that's just how I feel on it.

    I agreed with Captain, Java Tip. I don't like to deal with blogs in depth. Like so much deal with forums. Easy to find what I want so quickly and clearly. You in a blog it's really difficult, even I put a comment one of them, in most of the blogs have to wait for a long time to see a feedback. Or may be I never get a feedback. May be the reason is about the commercial aspect, I mean owners try to add some posts there and looking to put some google adds on the blog. Most of the time not worried about the content.

    Mine was the short version of what you say. Your words clearly convey intended thoughts.
