Blogs provide opinions and/or news from a particular agency or organization and breadcrumb link trails to other sites that you may not have already thought about pursuing to develop an area of policy or current events in which you have a focused interest. Here are a few suggested blogs to visit

One of the largest hurdles of using Google is the amount you must weed through. Some searches result in thousands of pages; who has time to go through all that? You don't need to. Did you know you can manipulate a regular Google search with a couple hacks to your search? Its true! Try these search hacks during your next google search.
You can also combine some of these search hacks, such as adding -site:nytimes.com to remove results from the New York Times website. More search tricks can be found in the Library's Google Search Guide
Websites are constantly changing. Sometimes the report or document or webpage you saw and need is gone. Sometimes you may just want to see what an old website looked like? To do any of this, use the Wayback Machine, provided by the Internet Archive, where you can enter a URL and if the site was archived, you can explore it. Keep in mind that the Wayback Machine only crawls sites 2-4 levels down, does not crawl databases, and search boxes on the archived site will not work.
