Update: the Forum has been removed. Blame it on the spammers. Details here. Sorry!
I’m a forum junkie, have been since the old Bulletin Board and Compuserve days.
Forums can provide a lot of interaction, similar ”“ yet different ”“ than blog comments. And I love interaction. Often the format of a forum is better for back and forth exchanges.
So enter The Phoenix Real Estate Guy Forum.
You can find it by going to the navigation bar under the header graphic, or just click here to enter the forum (see update at top of post).
Honestly, I have no idea if this thing will ever gain any traction. If it does, it’ll stay. If it doesn’t, it won’t. It is really yet another blog experiment (happens a lot around here, thanks for bearing with me).
Good idea? Stupid? I don’t know, you tell me. I don’t recall seeing a forum integrated into a real estate blog. Surely someone has tried it. Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
The forum runs SimplePress, a WordPress plugin. I’ve customized some of the CSS to make it match the blog styling. No question it will be evolving over the coming weeks.
