Arch related blogs, forums, etc

Ok,so I FINALLY replaced my Ubuntu based distros with Manjaro, an arch based distro. When I used Ubuntu, finding blogs, forums, news sites, and the like dedicated to Ubuntu was super easy. I have not been so lucky with Arch/Manjaro.
Yea, I get that Manjaro is a pretty new & relatively small distro (user wise) compared to Ubuntu. But Arch is one of the most popular rolling distros! I would have expected to find an abundance of sites, but I can hardly find any at all.
Does anyone know of any good Arch dedicated Blogs, forums or news sites (and please dont suggest the Arch site or it's Wiki, thats kinda obvious)?

True, & I do spend some time on it. But it would be nice to have more than 1 place to go!

It's not necessary to only use distro-specific sites. Things you learnt on Ubuntu will stand you in good stead regardless of the distro - package manager excepted of course. Gentoo has great doco - as does Arch itself.

One of the attractions of Arch is that you get (need) to do a fair bit yourself.


arch, blog, forums, news
