I just setup my new 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.
