Who is your blogfeudal overlord and master?

Everybody's favorite commie is doing an interesting charting of the blog family tree. I put myself in under Stephen Green, whose style probably influenced me the most to both blog and how to do it. That said, I found myself very early on not reading him as frequently, mainly because I wanted to grow in my own way and not be derivative. In that sense, the only blog that I read then two years ago that I still read with any regularity is Instapundit. I guessed Robbo being more of a Lileks creation than anything, but I'd be interested to see what you come up with.

Anyhoo, it will be interesting to see how this one plays itself out, and to see if there are any who would claim us as an influence.

And I was completely surprised that INDCent Bill didn't try to put himself on there under "Immaculate Conception."

For me it was Wretchard the Cat at Belmont Club. Lileks was also a huge influence -- but he was for everybody.

But it was not until the Llamas adopted me that I hit the big time, both in my old site and as the Big C.
