But for those who don't, I'm promoting the comment to the main page, here:
Howard, this is a "your mileage may vary" answer because it will certainly depend on the interest in the content.
This "article" was in our Top 10 articles on Tuesday for the combined knoxnews/govolsxtra sites.
Today, this one is performing in the Top 15 on the combined knoxnews/govolsxtra sites.
Both of these are sets links to blog postings. They were created using the Publish2 tool on a topic of very high reader/user interest.
I could easily create these without using the Publish2 tool. But it makes for quicker work and I'm all for that.
My work process is simple: Surf blog aggregators and blog search engines for appropriate content, bookmark the content in Publish2 with a fairly obscure tag. Get the RSS link for the tag in Publish2 and process through a perl script (which I found on the Internet) that outputs a bulleted list. It's format happy for our Ellington publishing platform. Cut-and-paste as "article" text.
The links can be gathered over time, by multiple users using the same tag or from multiple computers.
I hope that helps.
