Well everyone has their own opinions.

For me, a blob in the center is just easier and cleaner. If you like spreading it then fine, but make sure its a decent amount so when you stick the heatsink down, the air bubbles can get pushed out to the edges. If it's too thin, I'd imagine you'd get little air pockets stuck in.
