My List:
Marginal Revolution (Tyler Cowen is a master of the form).
The rest of the GMU guys
truth on the market
Organizations and Markets

Of those, Tyler Cowen is probably my top pick for awesome. Freakonomics has good tidbits on occasion, but because it is dominated by Dubner it can be a little too diluted. NYT has some excellent other bloggers, though, like Krugman and some more specialised (and rarer) visitors such as Uwe Reinhardt. Free Exchange (by The Economist) is also not half-bad. And for statistics I am a fan of Gelman's blog (Columbia) (http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~cook/movabletype/mlm/). I should probably mention that while I used to read these religiously, a semester of TAing/RAing/applying to grad school has not been good for my blog loyalty, so I may be out of touch :D

Economists View- mainstream news coverage
Becker/Posner- Two brilliant guys, who right infrequently (once a week usually, but thoughtfully)
Organization and Markets- Some cool tpics
Cafe Hayek- appeal to my libertarian biases
Coordination Problem- Satiate my Austrian appetite when all I'm being fed in class is MWG

I read most that are mentioned here as well as those that appeal to my environmental econ interest:

env-econ from Tim Haab and John Whitehead
Environmental and Urban Economics from Matthew Kahn

Stavins kind of blogs as well, but it's more article-type pieces he puts up on the Harvard website.

For this kind of reading I mostly read articles in Project Syndicate (Project Syndicate - A World of Ideas - the highest quality opinion editorial ( op-ed ) commentaries (http://www.project-syndicate.org/))
I also occasionally read blogs by Paul Krugman (Economics and Politics - Paul Krugman Blog - NYTimes.com (http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/)) and Simon Johnson (The Baseline Scenario (http://baselinescenario.com/))

Mankiw's Blog
Marginal Revolution
Steven Landsburg's Blog (huge variety of topics, usually with decent discussion in the comments)
Cheap Talk

Finally, I usually look through the Economics Roundtable (feed of what looks to be some 75-100 econ blogs all in one place): Economics Roundtable (http://www.rtable.net/index/rt/economics/recent/)
