Theoretically, yes. You create a custom UI for posting messages, formatting them with required parameters (board, topic, etc) and broadcast signing with your blockchain account/user ID. Then you either display the contents in a separate UI section or in a website, querying the blockchain for messages.

However, there's the important issue of spamming and fees. Posting would necessarily come with a transaction cost. And there's also other potential challenges, like re-organization of contents. Years ago this use case was considered (see for instance here and here) but as far as I know development did not continue. Outside of this community, there were also projects like ChainBB but they did not fare too well.
