Building the essential reading list for online journalism

What are your must-read links for online journalism?

Thankfully, my book is nearing the finish line of production. One of the final pieces is an appendix I’m working on that will offer readers a list of blogs and Web sites that are, for me, essential reading to stay informed about online journalism.

Because the book can’t be easily updated, and technology and the ways people use it are changing every day, it’s important to give readers a way to stay informed. Help me make the list as comprehensive (but not overwhelming) as possible.

Following is a list of blogs and Web sites that I used in writing the book and frequent on a regular basis to keep in touch with what’s next in journalism. Let me know if you have a suggestion for one that I’ve missed. (Links added 8/22/09 8 a.m.)
