Which ones are new to you?
My new recent discoveries are the Hedgehog and Article IV blogs which are pretty deep on current LDS issues – where politics and religion clash.

Dave, I neglected to thank you for the mention of my short LDS blog tour essay. Although I had posted it ten days earlier, it only received normal traffic until you highlighted it here.
