Thoughts on Writing a Legal Blog

Being selected as a Top 100 Blawg by the ABA Journal again this year is such an honor. What makes this honor even more remarkable is the popularity of our field. According to the State of the AmLaw 200 Blogosphere report, Labor and Employment is the single most popular category for legal blogs among the country’s largest law firms. Put that fact together with the fact that we are not a big law firm and I’m even more flattered than I dare express.

For those of you who have already cast your vote for us in the Labor & Employment category, thank you, thank you, thank you. If you haven’t yet voted, there’s still time–voting closes at the end of this week.

As I’ve said a number of times, blogging is a real labor of love. It doesn’t pay–just the opposite, it takes time that I would otherwise spend doing billable work. So why do it? Honestly, there are more reasons than I could fit in a single post.

If you’re considering starting a blog or if you just want to learn more about it, take a stroll around the newest blog written by Ernie Svenson. Ernie is a practicing attorney in New Orleans who also happens to be a prolific blogger. He’s written a great new book for the ABA titled, Blogging In One Hour for Lawyers.

Ernie was kind enough to mention me in the book’s Acknowledgment and has posted my answers to 5 questions he asked several law bloggers. Check out his blog post to get a sense of why I love blogging and how I got started. While you’re there, be sure to check out the answers that other bloggers shared, as well.

And thanks again for your ongoing support of our humble endeavor at the Delaware Employment Law Blog!!
