    A few links to blogs that are not necessarily about C#, but often use C# as an example language to explain other topics. Often a deeper understanding of C# is a side effect of reading these blogs or the sample code they refer to…:

    Blogs focussing on XML:



    http://skonnard.com/Rss.aspx (was mentioned by Craig already)

    Blog focussing on regular expressions:

    (edit on my previous post: Note that the last link refers to many languages that provide Regex support; C# is only one of them. Maybe not such a suitable link after all)

  4. SBC says:

    I’d like to recommend Roy (http://blogs.regexadvice.com/royo/). His work with ‘RegExp’ is great!

  5. Eric,

    I know he’s at Microsoft, and you explicitly said you were looking for blogs originating from other than the ‘mother-ship’, but I think Gus Perez(http://blogs.msdn.com/gusperez/Rss.aspx) makes considerable contributions in the way of c# blogging. I checked the current list and didn’t Gus on there. I am sure you have him in mind already, but just in case it slipped through…. BTW, I really enjoy your blog and find your feed one of the most useful. Yes, I know that was sucking up. I’ve notice that blogging has me doing that more, and more lately. Lastly, I am pleased that you are creating this list.

    In anticipation,

    You might consider having a blog dedicated for C# discussions just like the Exchange group:

    Your Weblog is very good!

    But update is less!

  8. Alexander says:

    Eric Gunnerson (pure C#)

    Chris Sells (must subscribe)

    Lutz Roeder (especially today :-))

    Miguel de Icaza (alternate view)

    Brad Abrams (good stuff)

    Jeff Key (goodies)

  14. A while ago Eric asked &amp;ldquo;Who are the best C# bloggers external to MS?&amp;rdquo; which sparked a similar
