Wednesday's Blog Watch
Editor's note: Every morning, James Altucher presents the most timely, topical posts from the Web's best business blogs.

Blogging Stocks asks the importance of Chevron's (CVX) recent oil find in the Gulf.

Freakonomics checks out the most surprising Amazon (AMZN) best-seller it's ever seen.
Both The Average Joe Investor and One Guy's Investments look at what is probably one of the most unusual acquisitions I've seen, the acquisition of Click Commerce (CKCM) by Illinois Tool Works (ITW).
Not many stocks can do this. Crossing Wall Street looks at Donaldson (DCI), which has increased earnings for 17 straight years.
Quant Investor looks at micro-cap stock Euroweb (EWEB).
According to 13D Tracker, Loeb Partners discloses a 4.6% stake in Perceptron (PRCP).
This blog is a great example of the long tail at work. I don't even know how a site like this got traffic in the first place, yet it looks very popular.
And here's one if you need a bubble wrap fix.
Great post on how to make money from your blog, from A to Z. It's a great post not only if you're a blogger, but also if you're an investor, to see how this industry that was a zero two years ago is quickly growing.
People definitely have a lot of time on their hands.
