It can be really had to keep up with all of the Twitter and blog data that is generated every day on the topic of Revit. However, if you have the time to skim through the main Revit blogs and tweets, you will likely find something that will increase your productivity.
In the interest of sharing, here are a few links that may help you get started –
My blog reading list:

Another blog list:
Revit OpEd: Blog Listing – Revit Focus
Revit chat (IRC site open to guests):
Crowd sourced content list
I have also created a Google Custom Search for (what I consider) the major Revit blogs.
Check it out at:
Revit Blog Search
This is a new Revit site that may prove very useful to you, whether you are a veteran or just starting out. It includes Links, News, Resources and Tutorials.
The look and feel of the site is quite nice. It is easy to navigate and looks slick.
From their webpage:
RevitLink is a source for all things related to Autodesk Revit Architecture. We offer the latest Revit news, free Revit tutorials, Revit resources, as well as useful links to other websites.
If you want to subscribe to their RSS, you can check out:
The Revit blogosphere is a fun place to inhabit:
What Revit Wants – Authority 392
Revit OpEd – Authority 389
Revit3D.com – Authority 96
Everything changes pretty quickly though, so I’m sure these rankings will continue to ‘shuffle’.
This is a little plug for a new blog called Autodesk Explorer. Its still in its infancy, but if you are anything like me, you will want to add this to your extensive Revit blog reading list. There was a good tip on finding warning related objects in 3D wireframe mode:
Autodesk Explorer: Warnings, Warnings & More Warnings
If you would like to see a list of blogs I follow (with current posts), head over to:
Revit Professionals (aka Revit Blog Directory)
Release 2011: The Families Guide was not updated for Revit 2011. Please use the 2010 edition of the Families Guide.
Autodesk – Autodesk Revit Architecture Services & Support – Families Guide
Do you get the feeling that perhaps, if Autodesk put it off long enough, they won’t have to update some of this documentation?
With the official Wiki now in operation, and a plethora of blogs, where will Autodesk draw the line with regards to Help documentation?
There has been a few posts about Revit content recently, one being at http://chrismounts.com/content/places-find-revit-content and another at http://excel2bim.com/revitbim/?p=2238. These are related to a LinkedIn discussion on Club Revit.
Some of you would be aware of the Revit Blog Directory I have set up. I have taken this content link list and added it to the blog directory site at http://www.revitprofessionals.com/
I have set up a new domain for the Revit Blog Directory.
You can now find it at:
I have created a list of Revit Blogs using Google Sites. Have a look at:
Please feel free to comment. If you would like your blog to be added (and it isn’t on the list), please send me your details.
This may be useful for you if you are travelling and don’t have easy access to your normal RSS reader – you can easily use this webpage to read the latest posts from these popular Revit, CAD and BIM related blogs.
