Ed Blog Treasure Trove

Kevin Drum asked for educational blog recommendations, and got a ton of suggestions. I’ve pulled most of the suggestions out into a list for easy browsing.

Don’t forget that many of these sites have their own lists of links, so there’s plenty of additional content to keep you busy.

There’s also a reference to a Frappr map of educational blogs.

The response to Kevin’s post demonstrates my weblog tipping point theory: once your blog is read by enough people, it gets easier to maintain frequent, interesting posts because your readers are contributing new ideas and pointing to interesting sites. For example, Kevin draws on his readership fairly regularly, asking them for input on a range of topics (movies, books, computers) that extend well beyond the political focus on his blog. Other high-traffic sites like Boing Boing even have submission forms to make it easier to convert reader suggestions into new posts.
