Blogging government officials

It has been a while since I have introduced you to any new blogs and after reading the Denver Post this morning I thought it might be time to highlight a few new ones. In "Cabinet blogs dish D.C. talk" you can read about some cabinet members who are out there in the blogsphere.

First, is Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff who is a contributor to the Leadership Journal. This blog covers topics ranging from IED attacks to Wilson Churchill.

If you want entries actually written (not just edited) by a Cabinet member, check out Secretary of Health and Human Services Mike Leavitt's blog. He candidly talks about what he has been doing at work throwing in some personal observations that are often missed in press releases. For an example of this check out his entry on the Gates Malaria Forum.

Finally, leaving the cabinet behind why not check out the GovGab blog from the people who bring us This blog unlike the first two is all about how to use government information in your daily life. It gives links for choosing cable, shopping online, and even how to store those leftovers.

Still need more? Check out's list of blogs.
