SEW: How Many Feeds Really Matter  
Gary Price at Search Engine Watch reports Jim Lanzone of Ask Jeeves, talking about "the blogs that matter". Lazone defines a 'blog that matters' as any blog with at least one subscriber in Bloglines - there are 1.3 million of them. (Why this definition? If someone has bothered to subscribe, then the blog matters). 14, 363 blogs have 50+ subscribers - these "really really matter". 437 have over 1000 subscribers. I've currently got 48 - so if two of you could recommend me to a friend I'd "really really matter" - which would be totally sweet ;-)
