*The algorithm uses the following formula to assign a “Trending Score” to each blog:

Trending Score = { (Σ[1/(days since feature+10)]).25 / largest trending score } * 100 

For example, if a blog had an article featured 5 days ago and 20 days ago, it would have a trending score calculated as follows:

Trending Score = { (1/15 + 1/30).25 / largest trending score} * 100 = {.5623 / largest trending score} * 100

Suppose the largest trending score of any blog was .65. This means the trending score for this particular blog would be {.5623 / .65} * 100 = 86.5.
