3 variables in a 2D graph

What's a creative way to graphically visualize user-rating vs time, taking # of ratings into account?

Say the x-axis is months and y-axis is average rating for that month. If one month only has 2 ratings, the plotted point will look as important as in a month where there are 1000 ratings.
Two ideas I've had:
- bigger dots for higher volume months
- plot point every 100 votes, with the x-coordinate of the point at the mean time of the 100 votes (so points won't be evenly spaced)
Can anyone think of anything better?
