Welcome to Affilorama.
You can build your sites however you want to.
Mark just shows you how he builds his sites.
You can put a forum or blog on their but that dilutes the focus of the page/site being viewed in my opinion.
For Ex: Say I build a site on yeast infections, people are just looking for a way to solve their problem.
Can you have a blog on yeast infections attached to your site?
Well you can, but will anybody post to it? That is a matter for testing.
I certainly wouldn't want to keep coming back as a return visitor to talk about my yeast problems.. I just want it fixed.
That's not to say blogs are not useful, some niches thrive with blogs, for Ex: hobbies
You can add as much content as you like to your site.
You can keep building your site up to the point where it has hundreds of articles but that is taking it to the extreme I suppose and that is when it turns into an authority site.
Will your site be able to sustain that many articles and will people get to read it all, I doubt it.. but that is up to you.
Have you seen this video from Mark?
He talsk about making an authority site etc..http://www.affilorama.com/blog/whiteboard
Anyway, just my Sunday rant..lol off to play with my new blog and then I might throw the ball around with the kids.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
