But out of sheer curiosity, how does WordPress decide with blogs get featured on the “Freshly Pressed”/Wordpress.com homepage? Do I have to submit my blog, or is it all at random? Thanks in advanced! The blog I need help with is uncannyderek.wordpress.com. October 17, 2010 at 5:08 am #530313 raincoasterMember Neither. It’s one editor who chooses what to feature. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/will-i-ever-be-freshly-pressed-giving-up-hope?replies=29 October 17, 2010 at 5:22 am #530316 optionalplayerMember Hey, that’s awesome! Thanks for the link. I suppose I’ll just hang in there!

Thanks a lot for that information. I’ll definitely be looking further into it. Until then, I posted my blog I *hoped* to get freshly pressed. Coincidently, by posting it today, I’ve never had so many blog views in one day due to its interesting content. Thanks again! October 18, 2010 at 12:06 pm #530508 bolesMember Best luck to you. Remember to concentrate on writing good, long-form, content — and the readers and the search index hits and, perhaps, even Freshly Pressed — will all follow in time.
