Idea or Disease?
The Blogdex tool crawls through the blogs as they get updated, and lists the fastest spreading disease/idea in its front page using its own ranking algorithm(which is still evolving). It should be a good idea to enlist your blog in their directory as you would be doing service to the online community in general. So next time you make an entry into your blog and think of it as an insignificant shit in the cyber ocean, think again as Blogger aptly puts it as:
"..Not every individual post has to be a masterpiece. Does the lone bird see the cohesive beauty of the flock, but this fact remains: the whole is greater than the sum of all it's parts. As a blogger, you are both an individual force and a neuron in the giant, interconnected mind that is the blogosphere. Yes, it sounds like a bad sci-fi movie, but it's all true."
Brief History: The term 'blog' is a shorter version of the term weblog or web log.
