At first, I discovered the Bubble Blogs. About 3 years ago. Especially the nationally oriented, Housing Bubble Blog. It was fascinating to read the destruction of huge swaths of Florida and California and Nevada and Arizona, and comparing it to the sheer blindness and short-sightedness of the local real estate market and the local media.
Then, as the stock market tanked, I found the national economic blogs, and settled on Calculated Risk, The Big Picture, Naked Capitalism, Financial Armageddon, and Mish's Global.
These became essential reading for me.
Over the last six months, I've pretty much stopped reading the Housing Bubble Blogs (not including Bend's own BendBubble2, which has morphed into an all purpose grumblefest), because that bubble done burst.
Lately, I've strayed from the Financial Blogs, as well.
What the hell. Shrug.
