    I don’t think it would work very well. Blogs work best when only a small number of people post on them.

    Dr Mike has made some other suggestions when people have asked about it before: maybe you could do a search of the Forum typing “Forum” into the search box. That should bring up the suggestions he’s made.

    There’s forum plugins for wordpress. I use this one on my own personal blog although I’ve gotten reports that it has issues. (I note that it’s been upgraded yet again.) bbpress will also use the wp user tables if you want to merge that into an off site blog as well.

    But to answer the question, you can use wp.com for a forum site where a member of your blog makes a post and allows others to comment. I’d go find a free forum host though. There are better methods out there.

    Hope this helps,
