AR is the key one for me.  I also use WikiRealty to some extent.  Z, T & RF I found the last posts in my area were 2009, so no sense wasting time there.  I won't waste time on RF anyways.  I don't like them and don't want to contribute to them and their possibly illegal buyer rebates (at least it would be illegal for me to do that).

Zillow, Trulia are great to interact with customers. Redfin just got rid of your area on the forum due to inactive bloggers with the market. You probably want to reach out to customers than realtors?

Val - I checked in here to see what everyone else provided as an answer. Looks like they are pretty much doing what I am doing, so I don't have much to add.

Val,
I’m hitting a new blog or news site all the time. There isn’t a single one I think is better than others. Google the topics you are interested in on any given day and see where Google comes up with.

I subscribe to CurbedLA as well as CurbedNY and SF versions -- it's not really a part of a business strategy but helps me stay in the loop to the pop culture side of real estate.

Get on social media and get to know some of the well-known accounts in the real estate industry. Google "best real estate Twitter accounts to follow" for a good head start.
