Once I have some proper news for my blog, I shall update it as such.
Great thread by the way, I look forward to taking a look at some of your blogs!
The first article I posted was on January 1st, 2011 about removing the glued magnet minifigs. Then I systematically started covering all the LEGO customizers I use and learn from, and also added other stuff readers were curious about. Most of the readers/subscribers are kids, and teens, and also adults who are new to the hobby. Quite a different crowd then here, that's why I hang out here also with the older LEGO fans....(c:
Another thing I started adding is articles from young readers and LEGO fans. They are not qualified to be on membership sites as most require members to be at least 16 years old, but they can certainly publish their own blog-posts. I'm good with kids, and really enjoy working with young authors. They write reviews, share their thoughts on the LEGO hobby and in general have great ideas and behave very mature. I usually help them with the first article a bit, but otherwise they write their own stuff. They even sometimes do their school-work thru LEGO blogging! Our youngest kid conributor is 10 and the oldest is 16. Really awesome kids. I'm proud of the next generation of LEGO fans!...(c:
I really enjoy Mariann Asanuma's blog. She is a former LEGO designer and continues to work with LEGO craeting projects on a commission basis and also makes LEGO jewelry: modelbuildingsecrets.wordpress.com/
There is this new blog about unusual LEGO parts that was started up by a member from here and is very interesting: newelementary.com/
Then there is Richard from the UK, also a member here, who started a whole LEGO news-blog specifically for UK LEGO fans. Richard is one mad blogger! He most be posting like 24/7 and always on top of things: http://brickfanatics.co.uk/
Maybe there's an argument for a 'sticky' posting containing a list of these sites and including a brief (one or two word) summary of the content and the Forum username of the owner, as a resource for Forum members. This list could be kept updated by staff as we're informed of additional sites.
I'll discuss with my fellow staff members and see if there's support for this.
I really enjoy Brick Blogger, I think I found it via your guest posts from Maxx, and love that you're using it to work with kids.
Useful post @BooTheMightyHamster, I share your August Disasters and adoration of the 41999 box.
I have a thing for LEGO rooms, so if there are any more blogs along the same lines then link me up please!
Nurse! The mindrubbers!!
Many a good giggle in there :)
As well as a frequently updated blog, the Bricknerd videos are a joy to behold. Professional quality camerawork, nice set reviews and some excellent funny bits. Lego TV for grown ups.

I suggest you all bookmark it immediately, and include it in your regular Lego site browsing. The R2-D2 review in the third episode is particularly brilliant.
Just had a quick look - that's an excellent site. Great find, thanks!
Besides that, http://sariel.pl/ and http://www.technicbricks.com/ for you technically minded folks and most other blogs other folks have mentioned too.
So far I've done:
- robot that draws a photo using a LED dLight
- built an iPhone tripod out of legos that twists left/right and forward/backward
- robot that plays the game "Drop7" on my iPad
The LED project just got a mention on the Dexter Industries blog so I'm pretty excited about that :)
thethat F word in a review!
