The ABA Journal came out with its annual top 100 law blogs last week in its Annual ABA Journal Blawg 100.
The Journal selected its top 100 from over 3,500 law blogs in dozens of categories and author types. The Journal culled its own list and took nominations from the legal community to arrive at the top 100.
I’m sure there are hundreds of law blogs offering valuable insight and commentary on niches in the law which did not make the list.
Having a valuable law blog is not about winning a popularity contest. It’s about offering insight that perhaps is not available elsewhere to your target audience. It’s about engaging other thought leaders to advance discussion on the law.
Nonetheless, the ABA Journal Blawg 100 does provide the legal profession a roadmap as to what’s out there as far as good law blogs. I also laud the Journal for shining a light on what legal bloggers are doing for our profession and the public at large.
You can cast your vote here for your favorite blog among the 100. You need feel no pressure to vote for my blog listed in the Legal Technology section of the Blawg 100.
It’s an honor to be included among the 100 again. You’ll see far better blogs than mine listed. And I hear the Journal’s comment that my blog can often be used too much to promote blogs on the LexBlog Network. You’ll see changes in the coming year.
For the many of you using Twitter lists, here’s a Twitter list of the blogs and authors courtesy of the ABA Journal.
