Do you enjoy Forum posting - And how to create one

For me I love forum posting this as many benefits such as make and meet new friends and learn new things every time. You can easy make a name for your self and find others come to you for advice depending on how much you help in these forums. Such sites as well you can have an advantage by placing your website link in the signature so every time you create a post your link is showing for exposure to other members.

Do any of you own any forums ? I own a few just not had the time promoting them yet one of them is doing well on its own I do have a moderator on one of them so that is handy but I do login few times a day make sure no spammers which there is a number of them and it is very annoying. The good thing about making a forum is that forums can often drive traffic depending on you choosing the right niche and set the layout well with good quality theme. Some use SMF for creating forum me I prefer Mybb its got slick designs and easy to use plus works great with the plugins it offers. Like the google seo plugin which helps with your links and information on your site.

If your wanting a good forum of your own suggest getting hosting first and domain. I prefer to use namecheap they offer great plans and cheap as well . Then once this is down go on there Cpanel and look at the bottom there be tons of apps and scripts you can install like wordpress and many more. Look for the Mybb click it and fill out the information you need. Then matter of just clicking install don't worry about |Mysql databases this creates it its self when you install it this way. Another great tip when installed also install the wordpress script through this site but make sure when filling out the wordpress installation section when it says create or place in directory part don't leave blank . Put something like blog so it creates a blog directory for the wordpress. It will then install .

Great so you have a forum not only a forum but a blog aswell. After each installation make note on the urls for your admin panel sections. So now you can create your forum and your blog. Or you could switch things around which in my opinion I would for example if you install forum first it will go on you main domain www.domain.com and you blog would be at www.domain.com/blog . So install wordpress first and then when install mybb make sure in the directory you put forum so once installed you would have you blog at main domain and then forum like : www.domain.com which is your blog and then your forum at www.domain.com/forum .

Example of directory here :

In Directory
The directory is relative to your domain and should not exist. e.g. To install at http://mydomain/dir/ just type dir. To install only in http://mydomain/ leave this empty.

I love posting in forums. I find that it is a great way to spend my extra time. I have met some great people this way and love being able to share my thoughts and opinions. If I was not so busy, I may consider starting my own!

Meeting people from all over the world is one of the most positive points in attending forums. It's very interesting to know the different points of view on the same subject and make new friendships.

I just don't start my own forum because I don't have time to stay in the "moderation" field.

I also love being a part of forums. I do think that being active in forums can benefit a person in building up one's trust and authority. One can also meet new friends and get relevant informations about a specific topic from forums.

I post in different kinds of forums almost every day, and it's quite really fun. You learn from other's post and at the same time you create and have your own ideas and views be heard also by others.

Reading the comments serves as a good way to get new ideas because you end up seeing some completely different points of view from yours.

If you know how to take advantage of them, the result can be very good (sometimes better than you might expect).

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I do enjoy posting on forums specially if I am getting something in return such as additional knowledge, or promotion for my website or blog. I always post on forums that are relevant to me and my interests. And I don't just post on forums, I also post on blogs and other websites who have comment boxes or by just simply leaving a review.

I love any place where I can write and express my opinions because writing is one of my favorite hobbies in the whole world. Besides that, writing makes me more relaxed (I always feel myself in a parallel world, haha) and keeps my mind always in permanent training mode (and this is something very important to me).

I likeposting in forums but not that active if I find it very interesting I will
reply or get interacted to the forum. Posting In forums is a way of expressing
my views and opinions about the topic .I love forum posting because it also my stress reliever. And it is kind of interesting because you will read some of views and opinion of other person.

I enjoy forum posting although I don't always have the time to post. I love forums where I can share my knowledge as well as learn from others. I particularly like sites like seoclerks and wordclerks because there are a lot of experts and freelancers who are generously sharing their knowledge and ideas all for free. In sites like these, I'm more of a reader and student. There are other forums I enjoy because of the content and the quality of posts by members. I get turned off by forums where members are freely murdering the English language while churning out nonsense.

My main line is forum posting because I enjoy it. Aside from learning from the posts on the boards, I get to meet people who would react to my posts. Of course, I will do the same so in effect, it is like getting to know people. Unlike posting on blogs, what’s more enjoyable in forums is the short topics which does not take long for me to read. A thread usually is 5 sentences on the average which is easy to read and understand so it is also easy to post a sensible reply. Maybe I can say that I am hooked in forums.

I love forum posting for many reasons. I have learned many new things to add to my knowledge base through forum posting. I made many new friends from different countries and since I have an online business I have asked my online friends to help me promote my products globally. I like to read others reviews on forums and share my own opinion. I only have a blog and I try my best to post content regularly. I want to further grow the traffic to my blog and I am currently working on this.

I enjoy being in forums. I thought before that joining a forum was just a waste of time and shallow but I was wrong. I could learn a lot of things from forums. I like sharing thoughts, and ideas plus I would have a chance to know some of the users and be friends with them. I never thought that online community has lots of opportunities and I'm hoping someday I'll establish my own forums, website, and blogs.

I love to write that's why I'm posting on forums. I am also able to express my thoughts and opinion on different topics. It's not something that I can do in my regular job. And I know that I can improve my writing further and learn new things. My friends encourage me to start blogging. Right now, I'm still testing the waters and forum posting I believe is a good start.

As of the moment, I find myself enjoying in posting in some forums. These can help me improve my grammar and English skills and I can also learn some tips from different people as well. I also do forum postings to earn extra income and something to spend some spare time. Right now, I am exploring more forums and hopefully will start my own sooner or later.

A good tutorial here. Now I know how to create a forum. I will use what you give here.

How will you rate Mybb? Since you recommend it then it is very good.

I enjoy posting on forums and I do have some thoughts in creating my own forum in the future. Maybe in a year's time. Like you said, forums have a lot of benefits.

I like interacting with others on forums and from my experience, they are the one place where you can learn new skills quickly because when you need information about something, you ask a question and many of the responses you get will be helpful. Even better, you can explore the topic even more if you are interested.

Would I create a forum? I probably would create a forum for my blog visitors. That would depend on how popular the blog gets to be of course.
