about the Hebrew language – Matthew Miller Nov 9 '10 at 23:32
Hello Matthew miller and welcome to mi.yodeya! Thank you for your broad but interesting question. As others have said before me, it certainly depends on what information on the Hebrew language you are looking for. There are so many blogs catering to so many different niches. In fact, even the term "Hebrew language" is a bit ambiguous as it has gone through many forms in different eras of history and locations. Consider specifying what type of blog you seek or for what purpose. – WAF Nov 10 '10 at 0:12

Unfortunately, balashon is the only serious blog about Hebrew written in English that I could find.

"Avshalom Kor", not Abraham! :) <br> I'm uploader of Kor's Hebrew corner to YT, and I'm the operator of Avinery's blog. Regards,<br> Or – user385 Apr 10 '11 at 9:03

Not a blog as such, but a resource centre for those learning modern Hebrew: http://www.hebrew.ecott.ch
