Worthless blogs

Aside from the different currencies that blogs may provide (information, happiness, comfort, etc), there is now an application that puts a price-tag on blogs. This application is based on the hypothesis that traffic is not a good measure of what blogs are but that conversation, as represented by links and indexes like Technorati, represent a more accurate view of the value of a blog. By using the application to estimate value, this blog, Im-Patient, is worth $0.00. But its lack of monetary value may incline people to believe that 'just because' this blog isn't worth anything, it is not worth at all.

What is your perspective on this issue? Is this blog of value to you?

Books on Doctors as Patients and a few on the Doctor-Patient Relationship
