    Would it be possible to either change the “Freshly Pressed” area to update every so often so that the blogs featured there change throughout the day, or add a “Random” feature that will pull up just any random WordPress blog? I saw the random feature in the drop down along the top bar, but that seemed to only take me to the WordPress blog, not other users’ blogs.

    In any situation where competition is a factor and page view numbers are the crux of the choices made, the exact details are never told to us. If they were, there would be those who would “game the system”. To be honest I haven’t looked at http://botd.wordpress.com for years and I never view the page you are looking at either.

    Me neither, I always thought Freshly Pressed was for popular blogs but I never look at the Home page so I was pretty surprised. I did not know about botd.wordpress, thats interesting!

    Maybe it’s just the luck of the draw, but if you’ve never seen your blog featured on the Freshly Pressed page, what does it take to get there? I’m going on two years running on Word Press and I’m still waiting.

    what does it take to get there?

    I’m pretty sure that popularity in terms of high numbers of page views within a specified timeframe is a factor.

    Hey everyone!

    The person behind the curtain is me, Joy Victory, the Editorial Czar for WordPress.com. Each weekday I go and look for the best posts on WordPress.com and add them to Freshly Pressed.

    I’ll soon be posting more documentation on what it takes to get added to Freshly Pressed, and why it matters to your site — stay tuned. We also just added a Freshly Pressed feed that you can subscribe to: http://freshlypressed.wordpress.com/feed/

    Saludos!
