As Robert Stacy McCain wrote the other day:
One reason that small bloggers don't become big bloggers is that they can't resist the temptation to pontificate, to analyze and comment. But the real value of the blogosphere (and Insty demonstrates this every day) is in aggregation: Collecting together a distinctive mix of links to news, research, information and entertainment, and then contributing the "value added" of your own knowledge, you own experience, your own personality.
If the real value of the Blogosphere is aggregating links, then Canada's Binkmeister is a bargain at twice the price. (This allows for currency fluctuations between the US and its 58th state up north. I think he'll also accept scrip as well, if you ask nicely.)
