Can you recommend some good blogs with a Buddhist perspective?

I'm 30-something, female, American, feminist, liberal -- I guess I'm the stereotype of an American interested in Buddhism. And I'm interested in Buddhism. I would love to be able to encounter more writings by Buddhists. I don't mean specifically writings about Buddhism -- I've already read some histories and what-not, and I've got a long reading list ahead of me on the subject, too. I'm interested in writings about a whole host of different topics, just written from a Buddhist perspective: movie reviews, analyses of current events, stuff like that. There must be a lot of blogs out there that do just that -- and I figured some Mefites have got to know some great ones.
Let me say, I know that asking for "Buddhist perspectives" is really broad. There are so many different kinds of Buddhism, etc. I'm afraid I don't know enough to narrow down what I'm looking for any more. I would definitely benefit from blogs that are newbie-friendly. What I really am hoping for are regularly-updated sites I can add to my RSS feeder that will offer me the opportunity to interact more with Buddhist thought and that will leave me with a greater understanding of Buddhism. (That's not a small charge, I know!)
