I just wanted to take a moment and let everyone know that we’ve launched forums on Bangkok Diaries. I know a lot of people were put off on contributing to the site because they didn’t feel they wanted to write a long blog post or simply because they felt uncomfortable about showcasing themselves as experts so we decided to go ahead and provide an alternative way for users to contribute, exchange ideas, and get information.
The forums won’t be replacing the blog but they will give readers and authors a way to interact that previously didn’t exist before. If you want to share your thoughts on a topic that hasn’t been written about you can just create a new topic/thread and get your own discussion going without having to write an entire blog post about it.
I hope everyone enjoys and look forward to chatting with you on the forums soon. BTW, the first thread is an invitation for people to introduce themselves so please do so if you’re so inclined.
PS. In the future you can find a link to the forums in the navigation at the very top of the blog.
