What are the Best JavaScript Blogs?

Posted on Jan 11, 2012

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I am a voracious reader of all kinds of sites. My Google Reader RSS feeds currently aggregate close to 400 sites on a variety of topics. It took me years to build and refine a list of the best bloggers for ColdFusion and later for Flash and Flex. While I am not a total noob in JavaScript, I definitely don't have as deep a list of resources I currently follow related specifically to this topic. Yesterday, I reached out to my followers on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ to see what resources other people follow and several people asked me to share the results - so here it is.

Please share some other sites you recommend in the comments. This list (to me) still seems light, especially on such a large topic as JavaScript. As a sidenote, all Sites are in alphabetical order (by last name where appropriate).
