Lotus Notes Domino IT professionals are part of a tight-knit community, and the Domino blogosphere is at the heart of their interaction. But navigating the dozens of Domino blogs can be confusing for the uninitiated. Here, I've listed a handful of my favorite Lotus Notes Domino blogs that consistently deliver helpful technical information and loads of personality.
Updated hourly, PlanetLotus.org is a convenient aggregation of many of the Lotus Notes Domino blogs on the Web. Rather than having to visit or RSS subscribe to multiple Domino sites individually, you can get them all in one convenient place here.
Chris Miller has always been one of my favorite speakers at Lotus Notes Domino events like The VIEW's Admin conferences and IBM's Lotusphere. The thoughts and musings he shares on his "IdoNotes" blog are equally entertaining and educational. You'll find Chris' reviews on different products and releases, access to all of his podcasts, as well as downloads of his popular presentations from Lotus Notes Domino speaking engagements.
See why Jake Howlett's blog won him the distinction of Best Lotus Blogger by LotusUserGroup.org for 2008. Jake's blog is abound with surveys, technical tips and interesting blog posts. But the most valuable aspect, in my opinion, is the downloadable sample applications available in the CodeStore sandbox.

You can learn a little more about the man behind these two excellent sites by checking out his personal blog, and get access to his increasingly well-known and informative weekly Taking Notes podcast series.
Chris Toohey -- a.k.a. Domino Guru -- offers loads of technical tips, examples, downloads and sample databases on his Lotus Notes Domino blog. Chris has been publishing his own articles and response to users' feedback since 2002 as a way to build on his Notes Domino development skills and also to quench his insatiable thirst for wanting to help people with their development issues.
