I've bumped into Morten Nielsen's Sharp GIS blog a few times in the past, but it was just recently that I finally subscribed after someone sent me a link. Very educational, on topic, and well written. It could stand on its own as a good blog for general web dev or GIS, and if you happen to have interest in both it becomes a must read.

The mapping tab of my feeds page had grown to over 50 blogs this year and it was getting to be a big time sink to get through all of them, even just headline scanning. I streamlined recently, keeping just the blogs with original content and one aggregator (PlanetGS) above the fold, moving everything else off to an archive tab. I've been pretty hardline about keeping the bar high to get on the main tab and SharpGIS definitely earned a spot there.
