This project is actually build around the idea that bloggers will be able to network, promote while making friends online from one platform -- which is from my website.
The site should have the capabilities to:
- pull latest blog feeds from the blogs submitted by bloggers.
- avatar for the bloggers.
- profile page for the bloggers.
- feeds of the blog must shown as the latest post from the blogger on the profile page.
- ability to rank websites based on Alexa rankings and PageRank as well as should be broken down based on categories of the blogs.
- also must be able to rank based on number of views for the profile page.
- should include a form and automated registration process for the bloggers. (will discuss this further)
- includes a forum and shoutbox.
- includes a comment section on each profile page so other bloggers can rate and comment on the blogger. (the owner of the profile page will be given permission to remove the comments)
That's the basic idea. I would be happier if you can work this around CMS like WordPress.
