And I agree with you on that. I think the key phrase you mentioned is "original content".
What I was trying to convey before was that if you're not willing to put in the time to create your own content, then perhaps blogging (or writing) is not for you.
I guess some blogs that act as link farms might be useful, but when I read a blog I think I am given an insider's look into the author's brain. If your idea is to link to other content, then perhaps you should call it something else besides a "blog" (or at least that's how I understand it in my own little world).
