I've been browsing the intrawebs lately and found a lot of amazing Druid-centric blogs out there. Mostly I just link from blog to blog reading them, but I haven't been able to find a decent list put together of blogs that cover all three trees.
Here's a list of the blogs that I frequent and enjoy. If you know of any others, please reply back and I'll add them to the list. Include the RSS link if you'd like that included as well.

Please check the info your posting. Half the feral sights are dead or haven't been posted in for months. Whats worse, some are pure negativity and burnout post.

Linking dead sights or negative sights is not how I would try to help young ferals looking for info and help.

(As a life time hunter, I am considering perma-switching to a Druid)0.

This thread beds a sticky.

Best,

http://dkkitty.blogspot.com - "DeathKitty" is mine. I stopped when I stopped playing during the summer but I'm making a commitment to keep it updated.

Expect Feral Tanking info, raiding info, and interspersed 10m kill/strat videos in Cata.

A lot of the time I'll just end up referencing Reesi's work, but still :)

This Blogroll has been evolving on another forum for about a year. Due to the sheer volume of blogs listed, I don't have time to constantly police them. If you'd like to let me know which ones are de-func, I can remove them.

Why do you need blogs? Elitistjerks covers just about everything, and 90% of the numbers that are found on blogs are taken from Elitistjerks anyways.

For the people who like reading opinions about what they like and dont like, you might want a list of blogs like this. So good work.

For ferals, EJ was wrong for quite a while...and finding ANYTHING on that site can be painful at times.

Vozkin, you're welcome to your opinion, but you are saying underhandedly that these resources are not useful mechanic and theorycrafting mediums. Which they are. /Dislike on your post good sir.

Blogs offer more then just numbers. The offer discussion, experiences, feelings and annecdotes. They also mention how they arrive at their numbers so you can determine if something is outdated.

EJ is a good repository... but most EJ numbers come from bloggers that reach those numbers on their blogs before they ever get updated at EJ.

On blogs, there are a couple you might keep an eye on to see if they return when cata returns.

http://mother-bear.blogspot.com/ -> darksend of tankspot, tends to be a bear in a position to give info on cutting edge content. He stopped blogging when his guild downed hlk (lack of content?)

Jacemora.com - feral dps blog. features mostly personal experiences as well as feral news/updates (and opinions of them)
