I am wondering, how hard would it be to write an extension that would allow readers to click on the blog articles to give them "points"? This can be a button or a label next to the blog article. Then have the main page of the blog be sorted by those "points"?

Do any extensions currently exist to do what I am describing?

There is Visitor View counter extension that does similar thing, you can modify if it do what you need.

Thanks for the reply. Do you think I can use this as a base and put a "+Point" button, so the article doesn't get points for reading, but for users actually clicking on that they like it?

What about sorting on the main page? How do I implement that?

I haven't look at the code but this looks very similar in functionality so yes I'd guess it can be a good base.
