Well, it’s happened again. The Delaware Employment Law Blog was selected as one of the Top 100 Legal Blogs in the country for the fifth consecutive year. In my world, this is the most prestigious award a legal blogger can receive and it is such an honor to have been selected again. It is, as the saying goes, truly an embarrassment of riches.
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 an incredibly high standard for the rest of us, thank you.
I share the honor this year with six 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 of winners—we’re all repeat honorees, except for Trading Secrets, which we extend a warm welcome to the Winner’s Circle:
- Dan Schwartz in Connecticut
- Jon Hyman in Ohio
- Eric Meyer in Philadelphia
- Jeff Nowak in Chicago
- Donna Ballman in Florida
- Trading Secrets by Seyfarth Shaw
I’ve said it before but will say it again here because it’s more true than ever—I am in awe of my fellow honorees. The time and work that they consistently devote to their blogs is just amazing. I continue to be humbled by the company I have been permitted to keep.
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.
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. So, as Frank and Ed used to say in those classic Bartles & James commercials, "Thank you for your support."
