Follow UK public sector bloggers in one place

Just completed a mass update to the Public Sector Bloggers website and feed which was initiated by Dave Briggs and tidied up by Steph Gray.

I used those signed up to @PubSecBloggers as well as my egov links in my blog's right column, which now needs an overhaul as a lot of sites/blogs are effectively defunked, to compile the additions.

Doing the update I was rather surprised to find so many blogs without obvious RSS feeds and found myself making some pretty harsh decisions on whether to bother looking for them. Based on their content's quality, plus whether it had been updated at all recently, they were in or out.

I haven't reviewed all the old list bar deleting two which were dead, so more changes may happen.

In my updating search, there were agencies and companies with blogs dominated by bad and self-serving PR, PR people with no blogs, big, big organisations with no RSS or blogs or blogs that weren't linked to.

Despite prodding, no I'm not going to name names but I was shocked! shocked I tells ya!

Here's the new list. If I've missed anyone/thing who deserves to be here then add a comment.


  1. Hi Paul, thanks for this - some new blogs I hadn't come across. Could I also advertise my own? Only started just over a week ago, so not nearly enough content to compare with those established ones on your list, but I'm full of good intentions! with the stunningly original title of Julia's blog

  2. Good work Paul, thought it was looking a bit more interesting all of a sudden.

    You seen It's a handy aggregator of blogging MPs and sits nicely alongside this one.

    I'm off to check my RSS feed is as prominent as it should be..

  3. Cheers Neil. Having dived in I'm very aware of the need to do more - other public sector peeps are out there I just haven't found them yet - m but also to segment more. Although Watson and the Lords remain on the list there is a good argument, and another audience, for just following tweeting MPs.

  4. Thanks Paul for this, it's a great piece of updating work. Am currently having to look at my blogroll - nightmare, so I feel your pain in doing this.

    Also, Julia rocks, she must be on there!
