It's not horrible or anything and there are definitely some good posts, I just don't like it enough to bookmark or read on a regular basis.
He's not a fantastic writer and some of the information is a rehash from other blogs/ forum threads but certainly not all of it. I doubt many people new about Ken Diamond, Mismo... I mean I don't really care to go through the archives and pull out everything but he certainly brings attention to stuff that I (and I would wager a majority of readers) haven't heard of. It isn't completely derivative. He also personally gets in touch with these brands/ designers and gets photos and interviews so it feels much more personal than just a thread on a forum or a blog post about a brand.

I would agree that the blog is self indulgent but all blogs are essentially this, and it's a small portion of the site. I enjoy when he talks about other blogs, it's sort of interesting seeing interaction between different bloggers and getting a glimpse of the community.
