I find the Literacy Tech blog good for what's happening/what's new.

Hi, Everybody,

I was wondering if people had suggestions of blogs that are particularly good for ESL teachers and others that might relate ESL to technology.

One blog that I particularly like, even though it's not directly connected to ESL, is the Web Savvy Educator (http://www.techsavvyed.net/) . I've found a number of useful posts in it.
