I just setup my new blogengine.net through my hosting company. I'm using this in conjunction with my linkedin group(s).

This means that new users directed to the blog do not have accounts. I don't want to setup usernames and passwords for everyone due to security reasons. Is there a way to allow new users to register for new accounts?

Now that I look at it.. am I using the wrong technology for what I would like to accomplish? ex- should I be using a wiki or forum instead of a blog?

I would like to ability for users to post and share information as well.

You might want to have a look at YetAnotherForum or AspNetForum for what you are trying to accomplish. You could use a combination of both... Use BlogEngine for your primary site and then integrate the AspNetForum in a page using the nested usercontrol functionality of BlogEngine.
