how can i search wp blogs more systemetically?

  1. i am interested in doing a research of sorts. nothing big, just an attempt to identify trends in blogging. and i need to search blogs in a number of ways.

    would it be possible to search blogs
    -alphabetically?
    -chronologically (based on their date of origin)
    -according to the blogger's age?
    -only vip blogs and only free blogs?

    -recent posts (not under a specific tag, but all the recent posts on an as-it-happens basis).

    also the enlisted tags(not in forum of course, on the wp homepage)supposedly show only the recent ones. would it be possible to access all the tags ever entered?

    any help will be much appreciated.
    thanks

    nope, not really.

    Best bet is to use something like blog search, and for finding out the age of the blogger, best of look on that one. Unless they say on thie blog how old they are you'll not find out. I never post my age on my since its not relevant to my blogging.

    you can see how long someone has been a member of WP.com by clicking their profile, though that just tells when they joined, not how old a blog is.

    yeah, it's a good idea i suppose, but not a very practical one i'm afraid.
    hmm, wp has millions of blogs, and i presume that also means millions of blogger profiles.
    millions of clicks to gather data....not very alluring.

    i wish i had access to a better indexing system.

    If you are looking for companionship online this forum is not the place for that. The only search functions provided here have been discussed many times. If you had used the forum searchbox you would have found the same topic was discussed yesterday.

    I'm really beginning to worry about you. You spend a great deal of time posting to the forum and show very little indication of ever becoming independent by locating your own answers. You have only a single blog post up on the blog linked to your username dated May 28th, 2007.

    IMO it's time for you to start blogging and to use the FAQs and forum search box. Please do not post a long rambling response to what I have said above. Instead, start blogging.

  7. hi timethief,
    i am just trying to get some things straight.
    the blog you checked is not my top priority at the moment.
    i have more posts at http://shongjog.wordpress.com.
    and also at http://shogoto.wordpress.com.
    please verify if you need to.

    thanx for your concern, but i AM trying my best.

    sorry for not fulfilling your expectations.

    please. people need to defend themselves if you accuse them wrongly.

    thanks for understanding.
