Blogs vs Boards

Boards win again!

I've had consistent internet for 6 months now, after about as many years without. The RPG blogs caught me quick and really blew my mind - looks like I got connected at a good time. But there was a lot going on in the years that I was not on the net (consult prior post for some examples).

Before the blogs, there were the boards. My journey has been backwards - stumbling into ODDD, K&K, Trollbridge, Doomsday, Alternate History, etc after finding out about them through the blogosphere.

I've never been much for monologue. The boards are dialog. Blogs are good, but really - the exchange, the community - the boards are where it's at for conversation.

There's just something about the boards/forums that makes it difficult for me to follow.

I should have said that I loathe the large ones. RPGnet, Dragonsfoot, Enworld, etc - those I have a very hard time with - am instantly overwhelmed. It is the smaller more focused boards that I've really come to appreciate - the intentional communities of gaming.
