It may be less beneficial than before, but I can tell you by experience that you will still get a lot of traffic by pinging your blog everytime you post.
I usualy post with John reese's pingoat (he bought it recently). I will also add my blogs to blog directories like blogtopsite...
Pingomatic is like pingoat, you don't need to ping both.
Blogs is an excellent traffic generator, specially Wordpress.
1) you add new content to your blog
2) you publish
3) you ping with pingoat.com or pingomatic (if you are using wordpress, it will ping automatically)
You just need to add your site URL, your site feed url and check all the sites (just click on: Services to Ping (Check common))
5) repeat each time you add new content.
P.S: With wordpress, you ping by default, so don't need to do it manually.
Also, claim (=add or register) your blog at technorati, it helps in some niches.
A good read for your blogs: http://problogger.net
there are many others, but do one thing at a time.
