Love your blog, been reading it for a few weeks. I have some ideas though:

1. Don't show so many posts on the front page. The images in these can be fairly large and when you're hotlinking to sites like indymedia, you're taking bandwidth from a server that's usually on its last legs anyways. They're run by volunteers. If you really like having all those posts on the front page, consider downloading the image and hosting it on your blog.

2. Provide a little text box on the right that has your email so people can send in news tips. Here's mine:

Over 30 threatening letters sent to CHASE bank branches

You should also consider moving off of blogger.com. Considering the political nature of this site and Google's horrible record with privacy, it would be advantageous to leave. I suggest nearlyfreespeech.net, which has hosting that will (most likely) run you less than $2 a month. You pay for what you use, so it's usually dirt cheap.

To anonymous,

Thank you for reading and we're glad you enjoy this blog.

We really have no idea how to run or manage a website, this is our first website/blog that we've ever done. We got the idea from Confrontation and Direct Action News From Greece.

We don't really understand how to implement any of your suggestions. except maybe the bit about photos from indymedia.

If you'd care to, you can send an email to socialrupture@gmail.com

We'd love to learn how to make this site better.
