3. Cathy Moore (Let's save the world from boring elearning) http://blog.cathy-moore.com/
-Think of this as your local neighborhood gem (restaurant, park, museum) it does not seem to be a large scale blog and has a moderate amount of followers compared to eLearningLearning (above).
-Cathy provides links to entertaining and pertinent topics and responds to most of her commentators.
-This site will act an ongoing resource for an Instructional Designer simply for the fact that you may be able to connect with blogger much easier than a main stream source.
