GovGab: Your U.S. Government Blog

http://blog.usa.gov/roller/govgab

Some U.S. government employees have gotten together and created a blog to share bits of consumer information from federal Web sites in a very readable way. The tone is familiar and conversational, so much so you might not realize you're learning about energy conservation, safe online shopping, personal health, and responsible spending and saving. Posts are peppered with links to the vast resources of the U.S. government. So far, there are five regular bloggers, each assigned a different day, and a substitute. All work for the Office of Citizen Services and Communications at the General Services Administration.

Diner's Journal

http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com

The ever-interesting New York restaurant scene is described and dissected in this blog from New York Times restaurant and food writers. Comments to posts can run into the hundreds, so you're not only getting the "expert" view, but the questions and opinions of a wide array of diners on burgers, etiquette, legal issues, and service. You don't need to be a New Yorker to find this blog worthy of your feed reader. Other city newspaper-based blogs in the same vein: Between Meals from the San Francisco Chronicle (www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/sfgate/indexn?blogid=26), New York Magazine's Grub Street (http://nymag.com/daily/food), and the Stew from the Chicago Tribune (http://leisureblogs. chicagotribune.com/thestew), which goes beyond restaurants to include industry news and recipes. These blogs are shared forums for more than what will fit in a newspaper column.
