Deciding what to include on a page of links is really hard.
Writing related sites:

Blogs I like to read:
- My LiveJournal friends, (as listed under “friends” — what a surprise) many of whom are published authors or are working toward publication
- Justine Larbalestier – the Australian YA writer of the Magic or Madness trilogy. Very entertaining.
