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?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
