Gov Gab - Official USA Blog

GSA released the official US government blog ( this week, entitle GovGab, with posts by Nancy, Sam, and Jake. It looks like the bloggers are each assigned to a different day and they casually discuss topics which (may) be of interest to citizens.

According to the initial post, "Gov Gab comes to you from the U.S. General Services Administration, where the blog team’s “day jobs” all involve making it easier for people to find government-related information online through sites like, and, and by phone via 1 (800) FED-INFO."

So far, it seems to me that the URL should more appropriately be, but I'll keep watching for a little while to see if the RSS feed is worth adding to my reader. For this blog to be what it claims to be, perhaps they should include other agents as well as state government.

Actually, I think I'm much more interested in another US government blog (Dipnote) that was introduced this week by the US State Department. Foreign Affairs always generates lots of discussions and this blog seems to hold true to form with lots of comments and interaction with citizens. I have also subscribed to the State Department YouTube Channel.

This is interesting: Linked In members discuss the top 5 services that they would like available online from their government.
