Top 1,000 Blogs

Bloglines tracks the top 1,000 most trafficked blogs on a daily basis.

I know people love these lists but doesn't this conflict with the  spirit of blogs?  To me, the value of blogs is that they give every nobody a voice and provide really targeted and interesting content about really targeted and interesting things.  So if you're a left-handed vegetarian Red Sox fan living in Dubai you have a forum to talk about things that are interesting to you and meet other left-handed vegetarian Red Sox fans living in Dubai

If this is indeed the spirit of blogs, who cares which one gets the most hits?
