Do I start a forum or blog?

Forum or Blog? If you have a website and find yourself answering the same questions over and over, do you start a forum or blog?

I am familiar with blogging and my experience with forums is a little rusty (Wildcat BBS, 2400baud days).

What do you suggest?

Which is better for SEO?

Thanks!

I started a blog because I was answering the same questions over and over. Can I link to it - usually not on most forums (self-advertising). But I have the hopes that someone will also search in Google or maybe just find it.

A forum really requires a community - some people. If you don't think you can get that community, do a blog. A blog is a bit easier to maintain as well.

Not sure how many people will actually pay attention of course. I help on an advice forum and sometimes want to be very rude (but usually resist) to the characters who post a query adjacent to a sticky post on exactly the same topic.

From search engine point of view Blogs are good for aggregating content and connecting content but blog discussions are more decentralized than forums.
