The official Wikimedia Foundation blog has launched and I've updated the list to include it. Please re-order if you believe it should be in its own section.

You should probably remove my blog from this list as I really don't talk about Wikimedia at all anymore, and while I think there are probably people who find my feckless meanderings about ham radio vaguely interesting, I imagine the crossover between the two groups is pretty limited.

I guess we can add Kelly Martin's new blog to the list

http://arbitrary-notions.blogspot.com/

Kelly explains the purpose of the blog here

QUOTE(Kelly Martin)
I've created this blog as a way to disseminate the non-private parts of my personal archive of the emails of Wikipedia's Arbitration Committee. I was a member of this committee from October 2005 through January 2006, and remained privy to its mailing list until September 2006, when I requested to be removed from it. I have some 4300 emails archived during that time interval.

In publishing these emails, of course, I am breaching the expectation that these emails would remain private; I'm sure Jimmy Wales will once again call me a traitor (or some other equally noxious epithet). However, I feel that the general public interest is served by the publication of these emails. An examination of these emails provides significant insight into the internal workings of Wikipedia's parajudicial body, as well as of the personalities of those who provide the closest thing to leadership that the Wikipedia community has. Also, none of these emails is less than two years old, and most of the matters being discussed are long settled; it is unlikely that any of these emails will have much effect on today's Wikipedia. (Or at least they shouldn't. They probably will, because Wikipedia's governance is so personality-centered that I have no doubt that there will actually be some significant effect, but that's really another example of the defects in Wikipedia's governance.) Those interested in understanding the dynamics of one of the Internet's largest social communities will no doubt find much value here.

I will be posting the emails one at a time over, probably, the next several months. I do have to "vet" each email to remove any personal information (other than that of the arbitrators themselves, who, in my opinion, have largely waived their right of privacy by choosing to be arbitrators) from the emails. I intend to limit redactions to the minimum required to protect the privacy of those who are not "movers and shakers" in Wikipedia's community, and all redactions will be obvious. If you, as a reader, notice that I have failed to redact something, please do let me know.

The motivation for this project grows out of a discussion at Wikipedia Review.

Giggy's blog and NonVocalScream's blog are both gone.

These blogs have not been updated in several months:

Messedrocker, Musings of Majorly, and Noroton's blog.

I made a comment on one of your older posts. You postulated that the WMF Board might one day see a seat bought by an investor. And lo and behold, we have Matt Halprin on the Board now!

We at On Wikipedia would like to petition to move to another section from "Blogs of Wikipedians" as we are not Wikipedians.

Maybe a new category is called for: Blogs of Ex-Pedians?
