The idea is to give people a chance to run a personal blog that would be in close connection to what the forum would be about (which is in the closest connection to what the existing site is about).
In practice, if you're into it, and active forum member, you may like the idea of having a blog for sharing a thought here and there.
I don't anticipate a huge traffic and activity on forum at the beginning. What could happen later, who knows.
