This relates to another request for Dashboard Feed Control. That request was to turn on/off feed from particular blogs you follow. The common issue is that some blogs post so frequently that you don't see any other posts.
In addition to the suggestion about temporarily hiding them, I would suggest a setting that limits the number of posts from a blog before switching to the next followed blog. I would like to get a selection of posts from everyone I follow. If I've gotten through all the new ones, and some blogs have plenty more, then I'd like to see them only after I've gotten to see everyone. Otherwise - if one blog posts 100/day and everyone else posts 2 or 3, I never get to the other ones. I end up unfollowing blogs I like to keep them from overwhelming my feed.
A fixed limit could be combined with some kind of priority rating perhaps and used to set how many to show.
So if I rate a blog higher, I might want to raise the daily limit or if I rate it lower, lower the limit. But still keep everyone from exceeding some kind of max.
This was the same issue back on tumblr.
