  • Forum versus Blog ??

    My question is, when should I use one rather than the other? Should I ever post the same thing on both?

    Hi Ryu,

    That's a great question and I think that the answer likely resides in you. I have sometimes turned a reply into a blog because I couldn't post the reply and didn't want to toss the time and effort I took to reply to something in a thread. Once I "let it go" to become a blog it occured to me that someone might find what I wrote to be useful in some way. In fact I think that writing anything on here is about letting go...letting go of wanting to write something fabulous, brilliant, earth changing, helpful, loving, humble, well written, creative, original, kind etc.

    I also had the same question when reading your post about THE MACHINE. First I'd like to say that I enjoyed reading it so much. It made me laugh because it was so funny. And I could relate to the experiences you were sharing about exercising. Because I think what you wrote about is universal when it comes to exercising, I also wondered if what you wrote would be well used in a blog that people would see right away on the front page.

    If this website really takes off as a public forum there will tons of blogs and posts and it will be catch as catch can when each of us checks in. We won't all get to read everyone's blog because so many will be coming in. Same with the posts. We will only read what appears in front of us first and then maybe follow a thread if it interests us. Or we will read the things we search for. In answer to your question, I think it's how you feel in the moment... Q:In this moment, would you like "it' to be a blog or a post, or both? I think it's up to you. I suspect that others will have loads of opinions about this and I look forward to reading as many of them as I can .

    Love, Delilah

      Hi Ryu and Delilah,

      some of my thoughts about this.

      I agree with Delilah. There are many entries on these Forums, Blogs etc. to read about stuff, and I feel it is helpfull to highlight some of the posts as a blog. Some people might read one or more Forums, and others might read blogs. I don't feel it is redundant. And some of us read everything...

      Especially when a post is like a 'complete story' - like a column, isn't it worth a blog?
      I love the BLOG part.

      I also liked THE MACHINE story very much, and it reads like a column, a 'round' story.

      It would be a different story to turn every post into a blog...

        Thank you both, Delilah and Clarie, for your thoughts, and the time you took to set them down here. I also am wondering if the folks who designed this thing had any vision for how forums vs blogs might be used. Probably a good idea to release on the whole thing.

          Howdy,

          I am the person behind the community and also the continued growth and evolution of this community, with the support and feedback from yourselves as well of course.

          This community is going to be the meeting point online for people who are on the thought pattern associated with this forum. It is for those searching and looking online and it is already starting to rank well online which is having new people visit this website every day. We are working extremely smart and hard to ensure that this message spreads around the world and becomes viral. And this forum is viewed around the world everyday, and accessed 100's of times per day.

          So what you need to understand is this forum is going to be a point where people can make first contact with you, this is also where you can communicate and build a relationship with people. Your blog is to reinforce your credibility and position as a leader and a person who has talent and skills in your market place.

          I would turn all major points into articles, videos and place them here and on my blog - personal or within the community as well. It is only going to serve you. People may or may not comment on your blog. However the chances that they are going to comment and participate in the conversation here is much higher as this is a public more inviting space to be, and others are already commenting and sharing their opinions.

          So take your best, or gain inspiration from this community and make a blog post, and reward people for coming to your website, let them join your mailing list or something like that. You will thank me in the future when you have your own following because you were active in sharing your message.

          Online is all about conversations and communication and sharing your message, this is only one way. You can share your comments and responses to your facebook and twitter as well. We are going to be integrating the popular social media tools into the community very soon, as we are set to launch the next evolution of the community over the nest few weeks as well.

          All the best .

                    Hi Pixie,

                    when you go to BLOGS (on top of page) and then on this blog page, on the right is an option CREATE A NEW POST.

                    That's it. Or is this not working for you?

                      Clarie, thanks. Does making an entry like that create automatically one's own blog?

                        It should do, this is your own blog within the community....

                        Let me know if you have any issues.

                        Thanks

                          Hi Ben,
                          I am new to the Sedona Method and not very computer literate. I am having trouble navigating this website. I just want to know when I can access the letting go movie for free in December. Do you have this information?
                          Thanks so much.
                          Patricia

                            Hi Patricia,

                            when you click on the big red characters on top of the home page saying 'get instant access now' you'll go to another post, with all the information in it!

                            enjoy,
