The Top 50 Federal IT Blogs
November 12, 2013 1 Comment
There’s no shortage of information sources these days. Many of the traditional media companies have moved their products online as print and direct mail have given ground to more immediate and searchable electronic rags. Of course, Web 2.0 made everyone with a keyboard and pajamas a publisher. One only needs to watch CNN and Fox News during election season to recognize how low the barriers are to becoming a well-known and influential blogger.
Even in our relatively narrow industry, it’s hard to complete a Google search or visit a social media site without tripping over one information source after another. But which deserves your time and attention? More important, which are your customers and prospects reading? And which are they contributing to as writers, giving you a peek at their challenges?
FedTech just published its list of 50 Must-Read Federal Government IT Blogs for 2013. The editors asked the government IT community to recommend their favorites.
If you’re selling or marketing to government IT decision-makers, I recommend you check out the list and pick at least a few of these to follow regularly. The list includes blogs produced by well-known pontificators, vendors, solution providers, government agencies, government and former government IT leaders, and media companies. These dynamic information sources can give you great insight into partnering opportunities, the competitive landscape, market trends, and potential sales.
On a more selfish note, I’m thrilled to see that Government Sales Insider made the list. I hope you’re finding it as valuable as they think it is! Here’s what they said:
This resource for government technology contractors features blog posts from 11 different experienced IT professionals. Building relationships between the public and the private sector is one of the fastest ways to bring better technology to government employees and American citizens.
