[Blog Directories] Good? Bad? Ugly? Your Opinions Wanted

I'm a new blogger and have just learned about blog directories. I read about Blogtopsites.com here, and signed up for that one (thank you!). Now I am finding out about other sites like blogwise and blogarama.
Help. Any advice for a beginner? Comments? Suggestions? Warnings? Favorites? Are any giving you tons of spam or some other unpleasant thing? If you use them, do you think they are helping bring visitors to your blog?
Thanks!

I signed up with top100blogs in addition, I don't know if it's doing anything for me yet, but since people still have a hard time finding blogs I think it's worthwhile.

Other than blog directories, making sure your blog is available as content in the form of an rss feed on Yahoo! and MSN is good too. Then people can add it to their Yahoo home page if they have one, etc. Also consider joining a web ring like "blogs tha cook". Hope this makes sense!

Andrew, that would be great! Amy's advice about an RSS feed about on Yahoo and MSN isn't gibberish to me, but I don't know how to get started.

Thanks! I look forward to reading it. :)
