The original way the home feed worked was really usable - you could just go there, and at the top was any new post you hadn't read. You just keep reading down until you get to a post you already read :)
Now, it's always posts you've already read, because it seems like it puts "new" blog posts at the top, and those are very infrequent? So you have to scroll down until you get to the actual forum posts, if there's room for them, etc.
So perhaps eventually there could be two different pages - the old-style feed, which is just chronological order period, and the new-style feed that prefers blogs, for people who want that? Assuming people want that?
