What blogs are you reading besides mine?

It’s been a week. A very, very long week. Which means that at 4 on a Friday I’m grasping at straws for something interesting to write about. So I do what I do when I’m out of ideas, I look through the email related blogs I’m subscribed to.
A bunch of them are still active, but there’s a good dozen or so that haven’t been updated in months. I realize I’m getting most of my current news from Twitter (or, Facebook) not from my actual RSS feeds.
So what email / marketing / delivery / internet security related blogs are people reading these days? What should I add to my list to keep up to date on the pulse of the email industry?
EDIT: apparently the Akismet filter I use went berserk with the multiple links in comments. I think I’ve pulled everything they caught incorrectly. If you tried to post and it’s not showing, drop me an email at the obvious place.

    I assume you mean blogs about email. πŸ™‚ Most of my blog fodder for the MainSleaze blog isn’t something I find in other blogs, but I read these semi-regularly:
    Al Iverson: Spam Resource
    John Levine: Internet Email Policy & Practice
    Ken Magill: The Magill Report
    Matt Vernout: Email Karma
    Mickey Chandler: Spamtacular
    Spamhaus: News Blog
    SURBL: News Page
    Like you, I’d like to see a few of them updated more frequently. I’d also like to have 48 hour days, never get tired, and know that I’ll live another two hundred years. <wry grin>

    Haha, blatant shout-out to my gang at Campaign Monitor – we’re still trying our darndest to stay on the pulse when it comes to email design and development πŸ˜€ –
    But in all seriousness, Litmus’ blog (, StyleCampaign (, Email on Acid ( and Email Marketing Reports ( are my top picks. And Word to the Wise. Of course πŸ˜€
