MP3 blogs are blogs where people post 1 or a few recommeneded mp3s, along with some discussion of the songs. They are nice because you often get to hear stuff you normally wouldn't hear, the files are decent quality, and there number of songs is not overwhelming. The two I'm following are Music for Robots and Moebius Rex. Music for Robots has a mix of contributors coverring a range of styles. Moebius Rex appears to be just one guy and he tends to post a lot of electronic/house music but he'll dig up some unusual stuff sometimes. He also posts pretty spectacular pictures of grafitti.
