    Also one blog per answer would be a good stipulation. – NickAldwin Jul 16 '10 at 0:14

    Please make questions that ask for a list of answers (i.e. polls or list-of-X questions) community wiki. While there not exactly the type of questions this system was designed for, at the very least the author should make them community wiki. I converted this question. – Robert Cartaino Jul 17 '10 at 3:47
  • @Robert I am not convinced that this should be community wiki. – CodeToGlory Jul 17 '10 at 5:34

    — it kind of has to be, as there's no single answer. Even answers which try to summarize the whole Internet can't be complete, and could be disagreed with by a reasonable person. – mattdm Apr 4 '11 at 18:48

Read Ming Thein at http://blog.mingthein.com. He writes frequently and I love the pictures he includes with every blog post. Start by reading the "Technique" section at http://blog.mingthein.com/technique to begin with. Also, he answers questions on his blog quite quickly.
