    Any good planning blogs out there?

    I have been looking for some blogs by planners or on the topic of city planning and have not had very much success.

    I searched the Cyburbia Forum for a thread on the subject and didn't find anything.

    Do planners blog? Are there any blogs worth reading? If so, which ones do you follow?

    Always something good on http://www.kunstler.com/index.php and I like the Kunstlercast.

    Here's some decent ones I check once and a while:

    Take a look at Planning Pool. The site was developped by a group of students at the University of British Columbia.

    For example, Planning Pool just did a great feature on five of the most unwalkable places in the world.

    Check out the Cyburbia Buzz feed; it's on the front page of the site. It's an aggregator of about 200 planning-related blogs.

    Thanks for the feedback

    I have visited a few of the sites mentioned and will be sure to check out the others.

    I also answered my own question after I posted this thread.

    I found several more blogs after putting in some more due dillegence (aka Googling).

    Here's a few lists of blogs that I found:
