Blog organization

OK, so below this are random answers and details about the Prodigal Art movement - if this is your first time here, you might want to check out The Art Caretaking Concept, or the Q&A post first.

Would a forum be better?

OK, everyone...

I'm thinking I may like to set up a forum for this purpose instead. What do you think?

Here's my current reasoning:
1. This is a new way of doing things, and there will be many questions. A blog won't allow people to find the information they need to answer these questions quickly and efficiently.
2. My purpose is to gather together 1000 people to help support this mission financially... and I am not feeling comfortable with the way in which people will be subscribing to this...... some through feeds..... some through email subscriptions.... I'm just not sure I'll have enough control to reach people when the time is right (when we reach our goal...) Or...
3. When will we reach our goal? I could have 4000 people subscribing to this, but only 500 of those people may be willing to help with the costs of the website. Many of those people could just be interested in what's happening...

So - would a forum be best?

Or - could a forum be mitigated by simply having a couple links on the side - one to a Q & A section.... and, another to a specific "email me HERE" link, if you wish to be on the list to support this financially....

What would you prefer?

I think I'm convincing myself this can all be done on the blog... keep it free.... and easy. I just have to learn how to tweak this around a bit! :)

I think that forums work best for tech sites. As this is about art, the simpler and more beautiful the better.

Keep the blog is my opinion!
