I have the one or other interesting Math blog in my feedreader that I follow. It would be interesting to compile a list of Math blogs that are interesting to read, and do not require research-level math skills.
I'll start with my entries:

I'll start with my entries:
Not always pure math, but I think John Baez' This Week in Mathematical Physics contains a lot of really interesting math reads.
I should add Terry Tao's What's new. It's a very active math blog (both in posts and comments) and definitely covers some cutting edge math, even if it can be way over my head.
Timothy Gowers' blog is excellent. Like Terence Tao, he is both a Fields medalist and an excellent writer. Together their blogs were my first real introduction into how professional mathematicians think, and their writing has taught me a lot, both about mathematics and about mathematical writing. If you are a serious student of mathematics you will find all the blogs you need by scrolling through their blogrolls.
Here is an entire list of math blogs.
I find Annoying Precision to be wonderfully readable, and has many many interesting topics. Additionally, Rigorous Trivialities is a bit higher level, but has a really useful intro to Algebraic Geometry.
Math-blog is one I have in my google reader and I just found this one through google reader but it's a little over my head:The Unapologetic Mathematician
Some more that didn't appear in other answers:
Additionally, I write isomorphismes which is more about the intersection of maths with humanities than maths per se.
It isn't quite a blog, but Steven Strogatz's 15 part series for the New York Times was excellent.
Always enjoyed Shtetl-Optimized by Scott Aaronson.
Not a pure math blog, but it's one of the most fascinating blogs in my RSS.
Gödel’s Lost Letter and P=NP is a very well written and active blog (also, both in posts as in reactions). Especially for people with an interest in theoretical computer science.
John D Cook writes The Endeavor
One of the MathWorks blogs: Loren on the Art of Matlab
... a few more:
(Check their blogrolls for more)
Although it's still new, I hope that my blog is pretty interesting. It details some of my recent research, things I currently am looking into, and some recreational math along the way. (I also use it as a teaching supplement to my students, but I bet that won't be too interesting here).
Cedric Villani's news is relatively new and looks quite interesting (even when messed with by google translate).
For statistics and related topics, see the very interesting:
See his blogroll for more of the same!
For those who are teaching in high school or what not: gaussianmath
For those of you that can speak french, there is the wonderful http://images.math.cnrs.fr/.
It is aimed at a wide public, but all articles are written by researchers and most are fascinating!
