What tools do you use to monitor the Blogosphere?

I'd like to learn more about social media. I am specifically interested in any web sites and/or subscription services (preferably free, but will certainly consider paid) that track key word trends, influence, and traffic metrics for the blogosphere.
I'm pretty familiar with the following offerings: Google Blog Search Technorati
, Blog Pulse
, Ice Rocket
, and Alexa
. What are some other cool tools people use to identify influential bloggers and/or trends?
Also, if I were to monitor the blogosphere for a living (let me worry about finding paying clients) what sort of online tools would I need to do the job effectively?
Thanks for your help!
