“It makes you wonder whether traditional criticism makes sense for weblogs. They shouldn’t be judged in isolation, as one would judge a magazine or TV show. It’s important how they add to the total fabric of the web, especially the local community of weblogs they’re part of.”

I think it doesn’t make sense for weblogs to be rated or criticised by people who don’t read the weblog regularly. You can’t base your judgement on briefly reading the current homepage, as Blog You obviously do. The only opinions I would consider to be significant are the ones of the faithful readers. And if you have many of them, and they’re all nice people, that says a lot more about the quality of your blog than anything else.
