I run a creative arts blog on wordpress (thehashmark.wordpress.com), and am always annoyed when I log in and see the same old blogs hogging the space in the top blogs section. Its always technology news and updates, which I don't necessarily have a problem with, its just that there is no range. I understand that they are there because they are getting the most hits, but I wish wordpress would perhaps create a 'recommended blogs' section that featured small, original blogs, instead of giving advertising space to the same old recycled material. We have loads of enthusiastic contributors who would love to see their stuff getting more hits - I'm sure wordpress could give us a helping hand.
Thanks a lot, duncannichols
P.S If that came across as bitching I apologise.
