I am guessing the answer is to write a couple of articles relating to the forum topic and add them in to their own section. There must be another way of doing it though.
Ask yourself this: What gets you hooked? To extend the fishing analogy: What's the bait that sets the hook - for you? You ought to be able to write any number of articles examining what interests you. Write some articles then open the forum with thought provoking questions or commentary - inviting replies, or you could simply do your creative writing as posts in your forum and invite replies.
I'm a big fan of helpful insights expressed with brevity and humor. There are tons of sites that fill page after page with fluff and anecdote, 80 sentences to make 1 point, often of little surprise or value. I'm certain there's people with time for that type of reading. Not me.
Maybe when I get down to site creation I'll have to adopt a dual personality: Homespun and robust. The problem is it usually takes me 3 days - of vacation - to achieve the laid back state ;-) So I guess I'll do my laid back writing whilst I'm on vacation.
Which may be a good excuse for taking more vacations.
But, if I'm working on vacation is it really a vacation, or can I take the expenses as a business expense?
Ack! As you can see. I'm not yet on vacation for 3 days.
There must be another way of doing it though.
Yes, there is:
Ask for 'help'.
You could post an article about how you are having problems with/learning something and ask people to help you out. You'd be suprised how many 'experts' there are out there that would love to tell you what to do.
Consider something as simple as buying a car. You ask for which is better: Ford,Chevy or Dodge? Pretty soon every maniacal make man out there will tell you everything you needed to know and why you should choose this make over the others.
