OK I'll start. I consult The Big Picture daily. So I lucked in. I would appreciate others reactions to the lower ranked ones. Barry is interesting but mostly just gives us pointers to items and events that have caught his attention. He performs more like an editor than an author.

Interesting! I didn't know about these blogs. I just checked out The Big Picture, and it looks interesting though the entries seem brief. You're right - - he doesn't write much, but provides a lot of links.

I'll check the others later on and chime in if I have any worthwhile responses.

I looked at the blogs you listed, kcowan. I'd say Seeking Alpha and Nouriel Roubini’s Global EconoMonitor were my favorites of those, followed by WSJ MarketBeat and The Big Picture. The rest are not of great interest to me. I don't know of any other blogs to add to your list.

"Seeking Alpha" and "WSJ MarketWatch" are also near the top of my list. (I left them off my suggestions because they were already mentioned.) I have CNNMoney send me e-mail because their Blogs are too cluttered.

A few other aggregators,
Abnormal Returns
Kirk Report
research sites,
Bespoke
CXO
commentators,
Economonitor
Naked Capitalism
housing market,
Calculated Risk
and economics,
Economist Free Exchange
Econonmics Roundup
There are many others more specialized, such as Brad Setsers on monetary flows, but they captured the top ones.

Keith,

Thank-you for starting an interesting thread. I'm not too big on finance blogs, as most emphasize individual equities and I'm an ETF, index and managed fund kinda guy, but I like that you turn to sources other than those typically cited on this forum (most of which are also excellent, by the way) to inform your investing decisions. I try to do the same.

Tom

Rule #1 for a good discussion: Make your case in paragraphs and not pages.

Rule #2: Bring numbers.

Long-winded appeals to emotion don't cut it with me.

Ooopps... forgot to add. I'm a passion saver now who firmly believes in... well, I'll get back to you once I figure it out.
