This is the list of webblogs, websites, and services I recommend for additional reading and/or found very useful.

Most blogs, websites, and services which are already popular and/or ranking in search engines are not included. For this linklist, I want to give more attention to those that I, at least, do not see in search engine results or not mentioned in social media and social networks. Read Linklists Are Back for more information.
