Blogs - Its About Community Stupid

Some wonder why blogs have became so popular. Its pretty simple. Never has it ever been so easy to communicate ideas to tons of people.

Much as WebFountain can do a job of predicting what sale numbers will be like, a person can perform the similar functions using what bloggers are saying.
Those who have blogs are self defined as outspoken "sneezers" who spread ideas.

Here is a list of the top blog community tools and sites. Please help me learn more by adding your favorite tools.
