Julia Evans blog, for those interested is
I "follow" several which are mostly defunct, but in terms of blogs that still feature active updates:
Evan Klitze's blog: lots of topics around Linux, C++, etc. https://eklitzke.org/
Sutter's Mill: lots of "state of the world" for C++, but also context, history, etc. https://herbsutter.com/
IT Hare: C++, game programming http://ithare.com/

I'm loving all the blog recommendations I get here, but I don't see how I can follow the content reliably like I can with my favorite podcasts.
The key features I need is "read when scrolled" and a clean interface
Aphyr's (aka the guy behind the Jepsen distributed system test series): https://aphyr.com/
Fred Herbert, the author of Learn You Some Erlang: http://ferd.ca/
Eevee, who posts a mishmash of stuff about programming in general but these days is mostly focussed on games: https://eev.ee/
Tef/Programming is Terrible, which features strong opinions about programming/programmers: http://programmingisterrible.com
Matt Kline, who posts mainly about low-level stuff and embedded systems: http://bitbashing.io/
Evan Miller, whose blog topics are wide-ranging: http://www.evanmiller.org/
tptacek, who can be seen tirelessly defending common sense in the comments on this very site: https://sockpuppet.org
Sonniesedge, who talks about front-end stuff and the human impact of programming: https://sonniesedge.co.uk/blog/
Carin Meier, who posts most often, but not exclusively, about Clojure: http://gigasquidsoftware.com/
Also Julia Evans, as mentioned in the OP.
This, for example: https://sonniesedge.co.uk/blog/progressive-enhancement
Eli Bendersky http://eli.thegreenplace.net/
Jeff Preshing http://preshing.com/
The URL is very misleading, his blog is about Objective-C (and now Swift) internals, in a very loose way like an "Old New Thing" for Apple's tech stack (w/o the insider knowledge parts, he's not an Apple employee).
A few months back I wrote a Reddit comment listing "just" the high-quality React-related blogs that I read : https://www.reddit.com/r/reactjs/comments/5t8loz/what_are_yo... .
I read a lot more besides that. To pick out just a few:
- Scott Hanselman: https://www.hanselman.com/blog/
- Robert O'Callahan: http://robert.ocallahan.org/
- Henrik Warne: https://henrikwarne.com/
- Andrew Wulf ("The Codist"): http://thecodist.com/
- Lin Clark: https://code-cartoons.com/ . (Her actual blog hasn't been updated in a while, but she's also posted many in-depth articles to Mozilla organization blogs over the last few months.)
And while I don't think
It's a shame RSS feeds seem to have been mostly ignored after the death of Google Reader. They're a _fantastic_ way to stay up to date with a wide variety of sites.
It's a curated and tagged list of company blogposts - published every weekday (or whenever I get 5-10 good links for the day)! As of now it is limited to only engineering blogs.

Also I think this comment from Dan's blog (https://danluu.com/about/) is very true and important:
> I view that as a sign there’s a desperate shortage of understandable explanation of technical topics. There’s nothing here that most of my co-workers don’t know (with the exception of maybe three or four posts where I propose novel ideas). It’s just that they don’t blog and I do. I’m not going to try to convince you to start writing a blog, since that has to be something you want to do, but I will point out that there’s a large gap that’s waiting to be filled by your knowledge. When I started writing this blog, I figured almost no one would ever read it; sure Joel Spolsky and Steve Yegge created widely read blogs, but that was back when almost no one was blogging. Now that there are millions of blogs, there’s just no way to start a new blog and get noticed. Turns out that’s not true.
I really think there is a shortage of understandable explanations of technical topics, and I see new people writing great posts clarifying complicated technical topics all the time. And I find people really do notice/appreciate it. So if you're excited about blogging, maybe do it :)
There's also an OPML file that you can import into Feedly.
It's like a daily readers digest of software development stuff. And the tagline just quoted is a little out of date - it's got a strong .NET leaning but that's not the only thing on there.
He's the guy behind Have I Been Pwned (https://haveibeenpwned.com/).
I'm also a fan of the comics the author Peter Krumins puts out https://comic.browserling.com/
Enough programming news for a lifetime, or two.
Its a hardware/hardware startup blog written by what looks like a full(ish) stack hardware VC.
* Blogs with a math focus:
* Blogs with a programming languages focus:
* Blogs with a UI design focus:
* Blogs with a graphics / 3D rendering focus:
* Other interesting / more general programming blogs (many of these have a "systems" focus):
