It's so nice to get a compliment. And when the compliment comes from the ABA Journal for the fourth year in a row, it's really, really, really nice. Yes, that's right, the Delaware Employment Law Blog was selected as one of the Top 100 Legal Blogs in the country in the 6th Annual edition of the Top 100. This is the fourth consecutive year in which we've been awarded this incredible honor and, I can assure you, it is no less a surprise or a thrill this year than it was four years ago.
To those who nominated us for the award, thank you. To all of our readers, thank you. And to all of the many, many, many employment law bloggers whose posts continue to set a very high bar, thank you.
I share the honor this year with five other employment-law bloggers, each of which does a tremendous job reporting on the various aspects our shared practice area. Most of you likely already read the blogs of my co-winners but, if you don't, you should. Here's the list:
- Dan Schwartz in Connecticut (also a 4th-time winnner)
- Jon Hyman in Ohio (enjoying his 3d win)
- Philip Miles in Pennsylvania
- Jeff Nowak in Chicago (who covers the FMLA)
- Donna Ballman in Florida (the only employee-side lawyer to make the list)
You can vote for your favorite in the employment-law category at the ABA Journal site . . . but no pressure, really. You can find all of the Top 100 bloggers on Twitter through the ABA Journal's list.
Writing a legal blog is a labor of love. And, by that, I mean that it doesn't pay the bills. To consistently put up quality posts that are original and interesting to readers is no easy feat--especially when the demands of our day jobs can be, well, demanding. To be recognized for the hard work that goes into writing a legal blog really does mean so much. Almost as much as knowing that our readers find value in the content that we generate.
So, as Frank and Ed used to say in the class Bartles and James commercials, "Thank you for your support."
