I recently talked to Matt Johnson from SandwellMBC and he mentioned a really great idea to put all relevant feeds from notable local government blogs on a webpage. This is so other people can keep up with recent activities of fellow colleagues across government. So I’ve selected my top picks for local government online blogs and did a mashup of those blogs. I’m hoping Matt will find this useful and maybe others as well.
This is obviously an alternative to google readers and etc. Its just a matter of preference, you might love it or hate it. But if 1 person can find it useful, that would be an accomplishment for me.
My prediction: This type of blog mashup will soon be replicated by others who have their own blog recommendations and we will soon see a mashup of ‘blog mashups’. My choice of blogs are based on how I see their value and also my personal communication with each of them for the past few months. It would be interesting to see if other blog mashups will pop up in the next few weeks.
PAY IT FORWARD.
