    I think there are a lot of good ideas and advice in this article. I've actually giving some of these tips to other forum own friends in the past; particularly "Rome wasn't build in a day, neither should your forum." Some really good advice.

    Nice article and it's true. Without the willingness of blood and tears you will not have a successful site. You might, but I wouldn't say it was earned.

    Great advice, thanks! You are correct, consistency is the key! Your forum won't become popular in 1 week, 1 month, but if you keep at it, in a year it could have 20,000 members!

    Yes it is too difficult to choose between good and bad. They coexist in the community. Another quote'birds of the same feather flock together', if your forum is encouraging people with good intentions more and more such fellows migrate and you can take pride of a large good community.

    Thanks, that works. Can't wait to read what you've come up with!
    Indeed. I couldn't have said it any better myself. It takes time to grow a community, but with the right idea, work ethic, and dedication, you will surpass any goals that you set for your communtiy!:thumbsup:

    I like that it was really easy to understand and not full of jargon that a layperson such as myself wouldn't understand. However, having said that, I realize this is geared towards those that have a forum, do you feel it applies to those of us who have blogs? I was trying to figure out if I could incorporate some of your ideas into my blogging creativity.

    It can apply to a blog as well, but I've never tried to up-keep a blog itself. I'd stand firm and say content is also king with blogs. And the best way to receive comments from others is by posting questions or something inside your blog posts - encouraging readers to reply.
