    Although I follow many jQuery related blogs, some of them that are added in this list are new to me – thanks a lot for that! You could add an OPML file to the article, for easy RSS-reader-inclusion 🙂 .

    Also, thanks a lot for mentioning Marcofolio.net – hope you like the jQuery articles!

    I’ve seen a lot of jQuery-related roundups, and most are obviously put together based on a cursory Google search. Yours is one of the few that demonstrate good editorial judgment.

    Thanks for putting together this list (and for including learningjquery.com)!
