I suggest you ...

Allow custom blogs and RSS feeds on the home page

It would be very useful if the Home Page is able to accommodate custom content through various internet entities like blogs other than the Faithlife/Logos blogs as well as RSS feeds and the like.
Content can be limited to text only to eliminate security concerns.

The discussion also suggests a feature that requires smart code to make it happen: automatically recognize citation styles and allow links to resources already in user's library or just for bibliography reasons.

    One other comment. Wouldn't it also be to Logo's advantage to start "working" with bloggers. I don't ever see any affiliates for Logo's on these sites. I know that in order to get this feature it has to make economic sense for Logo's to do it. If Bloggers were able to advertise Logo's products on their pages with them getting a fraction of the action then the Bloggers maybe more open to formatting their sites so that this works best in Logo's. I wear my Logo's jacket all the time and every week people ask about Logo's which of course I tell them about Logo's. The point being there are a lot of people who know nothing about Logo's products. To me it only makes sense that Logo's would have some sort of Blogger's "program". I also understand that Logo's may not agree with the things that are said on Blogs however, the legalese for this could be covered under Logo's End User Agreement.

    I love this idea. I envision being able to keep a list of blogs that I follow on the Home Page. When a page is updated the Home Page notifies me. I click on the link; the page opens in a window allowing me to open other resources side by side and with the options suggested above. I would also like the option of keeping the Blog post as a Personal Book. This can be achieved by highlighting the portions of the page to keep and a button that says create Personal Book.

    What I think would be good is if there as a way, like Evernote, to "clip" a blog/page and add it to the Note of our choice. Evernote's clipping is incredibly smart in recognizing where/how to categorize clippings based on what you have set up.

    Another way of doing this is not necessarily on the homepage, but through a separate and new resource type that would be configurable and specifically designed to handle such dynamic content.
