We all know WW is great for the latest news and info concerning webmasters, I am curious about the other blogs members follow -- on any topic.

There was a blog run by my city's "alternative" newspaper that Iiked to follow -- they would post local news stories and users would comment -- but about 3 years ago they hired some young-ish editor and he screwed the thing up completely. They turned their entire site into a stripped-down mobile version and lost all the followers of their blog section. It was a shame, I would have bought the blog from them and ran it myself.

Do you mean "blog" in the looser sense of "website that gets new content daily"? I start the day with fluff to get up to speed:
#1 xkcd OR Miss Manners (alternate days) OR Friday edition of thedailywtf
#2 awfullibrarybooks
#3 notalwaysright (consolidated version)
#4 clientsfromhell
#5 cracked dot com
... and by then I'm alert enough to visit the present site. Every few weeks I catch up on smbc-comics; same for Morbid Fact du Jour (decidedlygrim dot net).

For me, it's forums. As and when they email a thread. Read when I log on and before I log off.

WebmasterWorld - of course
GetSimple - about cms
Sublime - text editor

archaeology dot org/news
The Junk Rig Association

Forums relative to shopping cart software I use for clients, some online news, you know, the fake stuff, and lately FB to check on friends in Houston.

For me, personal, it is news (of all kinds). And a tv guide. :)

Blogs in general don't have much appeal and the very few I do routinely follow have nothing to do with webmastering.
