A random few of my favorites:
I noticed I used the same palette all the time. To change things up a bit I go to this site for inspiration. The best thing is that you can download Adobe illustrator file with the swatches straight to your computer. Presto!
I didnt know I could be addicted to photo sharing. Plenty of stuff to keep you busy for hours. Also a nice sneak peak into other people's lives.
Okay, okay- you might be wondering why I would even visit a clip art site. But this is actually a great place for a quick reference besides stock photo sites.

Illustration Friday. Yes, I think we all know about this site by now, but it's two-fold purpose to offer a creative challenge as well as be the link to sharing those challenges created gives me a continual stream in which to see creativity in action. I'm always finding new blogs that I enjoy checking out through IF.
Learning Daily. This is the blog of Cindy Woods, sketcher extraordinaire. It was her blog--along with a few others'--which propelled me into incorporating sketching into my life. For that, I am indebted.
Jacketflap--Blog Reader--Illustrator. I visit this feed reader several times a day. It's an easy way for me to keep up with many blogs at once and key in on postings that interest me. Of course, me being an illustrator, I head straight for the illustrators' blog feed.
