Development Blogs?

Either my google-fu is crippled, or the ratio of blogging to tweeting in the iphone dev community is the soul of wit, but I tried to compile a list of active iphone developer blogs and couldn't come up with more than about 40 or so.

I also spent far too long trying to survey the sigs around the forums and again, twitter. If you're keeping a quasi-active iPhone development blog I'd be much obliged for a reply here or a comment over at my blog with a link.

I was able to justify about 40 different blogs that held my interest and were updated in the last couple of months. I would have expected more, though. It feels like I had to dig deep to find even those.

When you say development blog do you mean a blog about development in general or a blog from a developer?

Well, I mean both. I don't think there's enough of either to be discriminating. Generally speaking though it does seem that companies are more often keeping blogs while individuals are more often using twitter.

We have a blog, I update it at least once a week: http://retrodreamer.com/blog

The blogs on my Blog Roll are all iPhone developers too.

Headcase Games' Development Blog

we run a "Retro Game of the Day" daily at this site, but once a week (Sunday/Monday) we will run a dev update on there as well.

We blog mostly about our own games, like updates and new releases, but we're *slowly* starting a tutorial section for new devs looking to get started.

I would guess most developers have some sort of blog.
