Writing this at the end of 2012, the list of sources for my monthly Tolkien Transactions seems to grow longer and longer and to take up quite a bit of space. I will therefore collect the sources here instead, and then put a link to this page for those who wish to see the details. (Updated 2014-04-02)

Almost all the sources that I share here allows “subscription” via RSS or Atom feeds. I subscribe to them all (and then some) using Feedly and that is how I keep track of things. Hopefully I will at some time be able to say something more about all the various blogs appearing here — or perhaps give the direct links to the associated RSS feeds that I subscribe to ...  but that will have to wait until I have some more time ;-)
For practical reasons, I have split my sources into a number of sections (more may be added at a later date):
Tolkien scholars who regularly writes on their blog about Tolkien and Tolkien-related matters.
Tolkien blogs where there's seldom something that is not related to Tolkien
Tolkienists (including scholars) who occasionally write about Tolkien-related matters on their blog
Tolkien artists whose art is inspired by Tolkien's work and who have an RSS feeds so that you can follow their work.
Tolkien news where you can find news-stories about Tolkienian matters.
Printed  the monthly or by-monthly bulletins and newsletters of various societies.
