Here's what I got so far: Economics Graduate School Information - UndergradEcon.com.
I'm sure a lot of you guys probably have some good ones.
This is a collection of posts by Fabio Rojas, a sociologist at IU and blogger at Orgtheory. The advice is fairly general (and useful!) and includes some special advice for women and minorities.
This contains links to some grad student advice written by Chris Blattman, a quant poli sci/econ professor at Yale.
Good idea srjcstud!
My all-time favorite is How to build an economic model in your spare time, by Hal Varian.
I also like The importance of stupidity in scientific research, by biologist Martin Schwartz.
For articles focused on the longer graduate school process rather than research specifically, I would recommend Being a graduate student in economics, by William Thomas (Rochester) and also the posts by Chris Blattman and Matthew Pearson that have already been posted.
