One of the best design blogs I've found is danielsolisblog.blogspot.com. I'm consistently impressed by Daniel Solis, who is not only a brilliant designer, but articulate and interesting, with a well designed site.

Any other recommendations? Where can a designer go for insight and inspiration? Other than BGDF and BGG of course.

Hyperbole Games (design articles by Grant Rodiek and other guests) http://hyperbolegames.com/

Ludology is a good podcast to listen to for ideas: http://www.ludology.libsyn.com/

Gen Con Appearance

I attended a design discussion panel with Daniel at Gen Con in 2011. Good sense of humor and a lot of good ideas to consider for design. Definitely worth a look...

Not a design blog, but Shut Up and Sit Down has possibly the best, most polished, and entertaining review/video series on board gaming out there. http://www.shutupshow.com/
