For now I have stickied this thread--everyone can make their contribution and then eventually we'll organize it into a formal photo resources sticky thread :)
There is a lot of good links in this SP thread about Selling Photos Online
TexasPhotoForum.com is great if you are in Texas, and even outsiders are welcome (members from all over the world have joined).
FredMiranda.com has one of the best forums on the net for photography (just don't put up a picture to be judged/critiqued, they are vicious sharks), and their lens review section is awesome (as is their buy & sell area)
Then there is ShootHouston in my sig, but that's really only helpful for people in Houston, Texas.
http://photoattorney.com/ - great place for Legal info for photogs.
http://thomashawk.com/ - one of the most famous photog bloggers.
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/ is a great forum for Canon owners, though there is enough there for everyone else as well.
www.betterphoto.com -articles, newsletters, contests & etc on photography.
Just found this one:
http://www.revostock.com/ -footage, backgrounds, transitions, music, sound effects.
Yes- this is a great learning tool! Huge advocate!!

wow some really cool photograph links
It seems to me that you guys are regulars on the web and have a very good understanding about stock photography.
I am from Cape Town, South Africa (on the very very Southern tip of Africa! :) ) and need some advice.
I have compiled the work of a number of African photographers into a website.
I am now in the process of communicating and promoting it on the web. The images are high quality and vary in prices from 2Euro to 100+Euro. We have lots of wildlife pictures and landscape pictures. We have also allowed people to use the images for free in return for a trackback link.
Does anyone have any idea on how to generate traffic for the site and get it known in the communities that use pictures?
Thousands of Free Stock Photos - http://www.freerangestock.com. Commercial use ok, high res images, searchable by keyword.
And all you photographers, there's an AdSense revenue sharing program.
This is more of a color site then a photography site per se, but the two go hand in hand and their blog always has beautiful pictures:
