Thai language blogs no longer being updated…
These sites might be stagnant but there’s still information to be had. Also, they sometimes perk back up after a time out (I’ll try and catch them at it when I can).
Ajarn Adam: Learn Thai | Twitter: @AjarnAdam
Adam Bradshaw’s Thai section of his English teaching venture. You can also find him on Facebook: ajarnadam and YouTube: jadambrad. Note: His blog is being updated but not the learning Thai section.
Bangkok Post, Learning From News
Terry Fredrickson and Jon Fernquest write articles for Thais learning English, but their posts are peppered with valuable vocabulary for the Thai language learner as well. There used to be a Thai section but it’s no longer being updated.
From the about: This is my pathetic contribution to the world of Thai language learning for foreigners.

Journey to Thai
This was one of the first Thai blogs I started to read. It’s a pity that Scott stopped updating his blog. If you are interested in AUA, he has more than a few mentions of his experience with the program.
Learn Thai from a White Guy
Brett Whiteside is the author of the best online course for learning how to read the Thai, Learn to Read Thai in 10 Hours. Go to Learn to Read the Thai Alphabet in 2 Weeks, 10 Days, 60 Minutes to see my comparison review.

Thai Language Tricks
Jason had a great idea for a blog, and then I guess he lost interest. It’s understandable as blogging does take away from other interests.
Thais leren spreken, lezen en schrijven
Rob’s Dutch language blog about reading and speaking Thai.
The White Guy’s Thai Guide
One of the newest learning Thai blogs I’ve come across. I’m waiting to see if he sticks it out (nope).

Finding his own way through learning Thai (with a focus on AUA).
Thai teacher blogs no longer being updated…
Study Thai (last post: 2015)
Thai teacher Jan Kannaphat is a new face to me but not to others. Ever since I came across her on the FCLT FB Group I’ve been hearing “she’s fabulous!” Jan studied linguistics at CMU (Chiang Mai University), and is just getting her blog of the same name, Jan Kannaphat, off the ground. She teachers via Skype or one-on-one in Chiang mai.
Learn 2 Speak Thai (last post: 2014)
The blog hasn’t been updated but the website is solid.
Facebook: learn2speakthai | YouTube: learn2speakthai twitter: @learn2speakthai
Mia Rongsiaw heads a team of Skype teachers. IMO Mia hosts the best version of the Maanii series online, Learn Thai with Maanii Books (includes audio and pdf files).
