    Hello Editorial Czar (shouldn’t it be a Czarina) lol.. Nice post and useful stuff.. Thanks for that.. I have added it to my sites..

    I write a couple of blogs under wordpress.com.. Some of them are just my ramblings, but two of them http://shippinginsouthafrica.wordpress.com and http://theworldofshipping.wordpress.com are VERY USEFUL and VERY UNIQUE blogs.. These are so unique and in such a niche that i cant find anyone else that has a similar blog or on the same subject..

    I would desperately like to get on the Freshly Pressed list.. I went through your post http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/04/28/five-ways-to-get-featured-on-freshly-pressed/..

    My these two blogs above (specially the first one) are :

    1) unique content that’s free of bad stuff
    2) include some images and other visuals
    3) absolutely typo-free
    4) not too compelling but very pertinent heading for people who are in the freight, shipping and maritime industry

    Only thing that i can see as a major stumbling block are the “tags”, because the tags that i write under mostly – shipping, freight, maritime, documentation, container – none of them feature under http://en.wordpress.com/tags/..

    Any ideas on how one can get around this would be greatly appreciated..

      The problem is what you point out in point #4 — your blogs are not appropriate for Freshly Pressed because they apply to a very limited audience.

      Also, getting on Freshly Pressed isn’t that helpful — the traffic boost lasts for only *one* day — and so I recommend trying other ways of building your site traffic.

        Thanks for the prompt response Joy.. From surfing the net and other blogs, i could also see that shipping, freight and maritime are not some of the big reads that people want to read.. Although 70% of the worlds trade is done via ocean freight and shipping and it involves maritime, surprisingly the interest shown in this subject is quite low.. hmmmmmmmm..

        Yeah well, what can you do.. Maybe some day people will get more interested and i will get featured here, even if it is one day..
