Language Hat plug, and etc.
If you haven't looked at Language Hat, or haven't looked at them recently, go take a spin. Their recent redesign has them looking really good, and their content is fascinating and constantly stellar.
Language Hat is also part of the really interesting (and promising) development in blogs where they is a focus and emphasis on a specific subject. This is the kind of blogging idea my uncle has been sucessful with, and one I first saw with the political blogs (Ben Domenech, e.g.) and first noticed/found interesting with theology directed blogs like the Catholic Mark Shea or the Reformed Rabbi Saul and Michael Pahls.
