    have a new client that wants a blog that is accessible only to them
    (ie not john q public)
    so, as I am familiar with making forums
    and not blogs
    what is benefit / difference?

    If they want some type of page that is accessible through IE/FF or whatever browser they use, and they don't want "john q public" to access it - may I suggest an Intranet site, or SharePoint setup - it will be web based and only accessible from within their LAN/WAN.

    They might not be big enough for SharePoint to be worthwhile, but Intranet only requires IIS and would be simple to get running.

    thinking of just making them a forum with a public section and members only
    sectiom
    maybe just me, but forum seems more 'profesional" than a "blog"
    this is for an aerospace museum for a state

    Does it really matter how professional it is, if no one is going to see it?

    Where will the item be hosted, an internal server or an external server?
