.GOV Blogs

Arejay pointed out the new Whitehouse Blog. Have you seen it?


There are other blogs in the federal .gov webspace. Below are some more. I am sure with the new administration some will go, some will come, and some will change.

Below are some in no certain order:

Change.Gov - The Office of the President Elect Blog - NEWSROOM: BLOG
  • One that may likely go away, get redirected or receive a makeover for current items.

Gov Gab Your U.S. Government Blog

As well as Goddard CIO Blog
