This is a list of blogs authored by government organizations, or by people in official capacities with governments.
The goal of this page is to track blogs from Presidents, Prime Ministers, Ministers, Secretaries of State, and from government departments and ministries.
It is not intended to be a list of "political blogs", so should not include MPs, Members of Congress, political parties, etc.
To add to this list, please edit this page or send a note to Ian Ketcheson (ian at ketcheson dot com).
