I've been reading the Dewey blog for several years and will definitely be recommending it in my upcoming Dewey Decimal Classification course. It's written at a level that the general public could understand but also includes a lot of "insider baseball" type of information that is useful for library students and library practitioners. The content can be pretty random - it's basically whatever the Dewey editors have felt like writing about over the years - but there's a robust search feature to help folks learn more about why DDC does some of the strange things that it does.
