Northxeast.com listed the Fifty Most Influential Bloggers and here's what they said:

There are literally millions of bloggers out there, each of them with their own voice and style, and yet in the blogging world, a handful stand out. These are the movers and shakers. When they speak, the blogging world listens. These are our Fifty Most Influential Bloggers, and if you don’t know them, you need to.
Are there others out there who matter? Sure there are - they just didn’t make this list. Is the list in perfect order? No, that would be impossible - every person on this list is important, and depending on what’s important to you, they might rank higher or lower on the scale than what they have here.
But what’s important is that these bloggers - and some of them are much more than just bloggers - are influential beyond the norm. The voices of these fifty bloggers reverberate throughout the blogosphere. They have had ideas that spread like viruses, and have styles that are mimicked by numerous others. They’ve created major blogs that have major audiences.
Why do you need to know who they are? Because if you want to see the shape of blogging future, the trends that show us where blogging is heading, then these are the people to watch and listen to. Their success stories hold for us a key to and an inspiration for our own success.
