Bloggers can't write... Sphere flattening?

I was talking to Shri the other day about blogs and we both agreed that some of the most widely read blogs out there aren't actually particularly good writing and are getting less and less informative.  Nate echoed similar sentiment and said that few of the blogs that he reads have a lot of traffic.  He figured that, if something was important enough, it would filter through to the small niche blogs that he reads.

More and more, I'm hearing anecdotally of people unsubscribing from "A-list" blogs and meanwhile, I've noticed the RSS subscriber numbers of the rest of us trending up.   Is the blog world becoming more flat?

I agree with the whole bad writing thing, though...   and if anyone has any really well written blogs they read that they'd like to share in the comments, feel free.
