But what about "Trending tags" instead on general reading? And "View popular feeds" if filtered to RSS feeds, which is exposed functionality? They already have the functionality for "Trending tags."
And maybe have "Trending tags" show up often - say, at individual post view unless it's an RSS feed individual post view, in which case, again, "View popular feeds".
Because one of the problems people have on Dreamwidth is finding activity. This would help.
Maybe "Latest posts sitewide" could show up somewhere, too. Like... at journal views. Where you're already looking at some individual's latest posts, here's latest posts across all of Dreamwidth.
eta: I'm actually kind of thinking now "latest posts sitewide" on the Reading page(s), and "trending tags" on individual journals and journal entries - basically swapping the ideas I'd had before. Because 'trending tags' might also be relevant when composing, and 'latest posts site-wide' goes well with 'latest posts from people I read.'
