WH Goes a’bloggin’

Ever wanted to know if the WH was curious as to what the blogosphere was writing about them? Wonder no more:

Jimmy Orr, the White House’s Internet guru, wants the White House Web site to get bloggier.

“We’re trying to make it more bloggish,” he says in an interview. “People need to see that we’re on the site and we’re listening to what they have to say.” *snip*

In his online appearance, Orr mentioned a few blogs he reads regularly. He e-mailed me a more extensive list:

– The Note, from ABC News

-Noted Now, also from ABC News

-Andrew Sullivan

– Instapundit

– OpinionJournal.com’s Best of the Web Today

– HyperGeneMediaBlog

– White House Briefing (You’re reading it.)

-James Lileks

And he’s not the only one in the White House who reads blogs, he says. Far from it.

“They’re important here,” he says. “I can tell you that a lot of people read them.”


Maybe one day, you’ll hear about how the President himself secretly checks out Sister Toldjah’s “Toldjah so!” ;) Until then ….
