I’ve been putting a bit of work in updating the Public Sector Bloggers site, which aggregates a load of feeds from folk in the public sector who blog (duh…) in one place. The website gives a quick overview on the latest additions, or you can subscribe to a combined RSS feed or by email.
One thing I have changed is how the feed is generated. Before, I used Yahoo! Pipes to merge them all, which was a bit of pain in the neck. So I have now gone for a much easier way, which is to organise all the feeds in my Google Reader into a specific folder, and made that folder public, meaning it produces an RSS feed. I then use that feed to drive the site. Now to add a new feed, I just need to subscribe to it myself, and whack it into the right folder. Easy.
When I mentioned it last time, I had quite a few suggestions for additional feeds to add to the service. I’ve added quite a few more, so the list now looks like this:
- Andrew Lewin
- Carl Haggerty
- Digital Pioneer
- Mark O’Neill
- Emma Mulqueeny
- Justin Kerr-Stevens
- Dom Campbell
- Hazel Blears
- Steph Gray
- Ideal Government
- Lords of the Blog
- Millbank Systems
- Neil Williams
- Owen Barder
- Paul Canning
- Ingrid Koehler
- Public Strategy
- Simon Dickson
- Andrew Brown
- Steve Dale
- Mick Phythian
- Tom Watson
- Jeremy Gould
Again, if I have missed anyone obvious out, please do let me know.

Dave, really appreciate your huffin’-puffin’ sweat labour in making this list. Homework takes time. It’s an immediately and immensely helpful egov compass.
Seems to be an Error 404 on Dom Campbell link?
Now fixed, thanks for spotting it, Bob!
Did you get bored with the alphabetical listing?! Jeremy will be most put out to be last!
Heh, no, he’s last because of the W of Whitehall Webby!
Ah! OK, well we cleared that one up! Also – worth noting here as well as everywhere else – I am being a bit rubbish at the moment on my blog. Do delve into the history for anything that might vaguely interest. Current musings are rather random…
Pull your finger out, Mulqueeny!
Hang on a minute, where’s the Miliblog?
hey dave, how could you forget my blog ?? 🙂 Jon
