    Not really a blog, but https://lwn.net/ by far. Some of the best reporting on current events regarding Linux. Also the only site where I pay to read articles, well worth it.

      https://rachelbythebay.com/w/ has a lot of sysadmin / “SRE” content by someone with a lot of experience (and a bit of snark.)

        Opened this to second this. Very good insights (though there’s a lot of opinions, it’s clearly coming from a place of knowledge). Almost every post leads me to re-evaluating stuff around me to good effect.

                    A lot of good ones have been mentioned like Wandering Thoughts blog and kmandla’s blog.
                    Here are some quality blogs with thoughtful ideas (the ones I can remember right now):

                    1. 4

                      Arabesque’s Unix as IDE posts (from 8 years ago) were really formative for me. Great to see that blog is still alive and kicking.

                      1. 3

                        Arabesque’s ed posts made fall in love with ed. It is not a joke or sarcasm, I really take time from now and them to think about interaction design of a line editor what could be gained from. It is mostly useless in practice but I just keep doing it for the fun and pleasure.

                        venam’s own blog has many deep dives into unixy topics: https://venam.nixers.net/blog/

                      3. 4

                        Solene’s percent - Solene is an OpenBSD developer who dabbles in NixOS and often writes about it her experiences in both!

                          They haven’t updated in a while, and are unlikely to, but https://kmandla.wordpress.com/ and https://inconsolation.wordpress.com/

                          1. 2

                              No FreeBSD blogs? :(

                              1. 1

                                Planet Debian is obviously Debian focused, but members post on other interesting topics too, https://planet.debian.org/

                                Following the local timeline of Fosstodon on Mastodon yields a lot of high quality technical posts and blog links, https://fosstodon.org/public
