First posting....why the blog?

As president and webmaster of the Eastside Astronomical Society, I'm always trying to find good, interesting things to post on our web site. The problem is I'm always finding too much good stuff! I put stories and links on the club page often but thought the blog method would be a good informal way of sharing my findings. I did try a forum on the web page, but it didn't get much activity from members. I could hear an echo in there all the time, and it was a quiet place. I then got tons of message postings from someone who seemed to take it over for his own use. Yeah, it was all space related stuff, but just way too much. I banned that guy, got tired of removing Viagra spams, and finally gave up on it.
So...I'll try the blog and see what happens.
