Those are still considered good places to start so go ahead and read through them. I'd say ask around on 4chan but you'd be btfo'd for being a total newfag. Iirc there's a blog on tumblr that has a lot of info and is still active but I can't recall the name of it right now. I think it's called Lolita tips or Lolita FAQs or something along the lines of that.
Most of the blogs are dead because well…the death of LJ and many of the blog writers have gone private, moved on, or their life has changed and they can't post anymore. I've been thinking of starting up a blog but I wouldn't know how to get readers. Rainedragon is still somewhat active. I can send out links later if you'd like.
