If you are an academic or interested in the world of academia the blogs below will be of tremendous help for you. As a teacher and post graduate student myself, I spend an enormous amount of time reading articles from these blogs. I have learned a lot from them particularly regarding my thesis. I highly recommend them for you.
I am not sure who initiated this list in Google Docs but the work is in progress and if you have other suggestions, feel free to share them.
