Linearity: a good thing?
As it stands, when one goes to read a blog, the posts are strung down out of sight through the floor of the monitor (into the Blogging Basement or somewhere) and need to be scrolled up to be read or to find a particular one. Maybe an option if a blog hits a certain number of posts (say, over five) would be to head it with a defacto table of contents, such as a list of titles. This could be a "premium" service? And if posts get too old but folks want to keep them up, bump 'em for a nickle a blog per month or something?
top 100 blogs
Are the top 100 blogs, both daily & hourly, updated at the same time each day? If so, what time(s)? If not, is it possible to put something at the top like "Last update:9:00 am"? Thanks.

How do you change the category of a blog?
Sunday, April 6, 2003
In answer to a question, blog rankings, as shown on the home page, are based on the number of unique readers each day for the past week. We believe this is a good indicator of the value of a blog, since it benefits blogs that consistently attract readers.
If you are a writer, here are some tips to help improve your blog's rank by increasing your readership:
- Post consistently and frequently.
- Add posts to an existing blog instead of creating a new blog. Blogs with multiple posts typically have more readers, and are thus ranked higher. Since readers can add a blog to their favorites, it's easy for them to track new posts.
- Want to create a new blog because the post is not appropriate for an existing blog? Before you do this, ask yourself whether you plan to consistently update the new blog. If you don't, add the post to an existing blog, even if it is off-topic. Keep in mind that you can always change the category of a blog.

TO BN STAFF, PLEASE CAN WE HAVE...
I know there is a facility to download pictures from pages on the internet, but would it be possible to download pictures from your own computer?
Sometimes it can be difficult to obtain a picture that is suitable or relevant from the web and also, downloading a picture from your own computer would eliminate the chances of using something that is copyrighted.
