It’s that time of year again, the ABA Journal Blawg 100 is compiling their 6th annual list of the 100 best legal blogs on the web.
They would like your advice and recommendations on which legal blogs you think they should include and which practice areas you’d like to see represented in this years Blawg 100.
To nominate a blog that you read regularly or that you think other lawyers should know about, use the Blawg 100 Amici form. Though there are no rigid guidelines, the ABA journal does discourage against “nominating your own blawg, your spouse’s blawg, a co-worker’s or client’s blawg, as well as agreeing to nominate the blawg of someone you know is nominating your blawg.”
There is no specific criteria that a blawgger can meet to be guaranteed a spot on the Blawg 100. And we think our list would suffer if there were. A blawg’s whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, and a blawg that never fails to post that daily update, has a beautiful design and an unwavering topical focus can very often have less of an impact than another blawg that is less consistent on all fronts.
You can nominate multiple blogs, simply fill out another form. Some of the best comments may be included in the Blawg 100 coverage, although do keep in mind you have a 500-character limit.
Friend-of-the-blawg briefs (or nominations) are due no later than Sept. 7, 2012. Coverage of the Blawg 100 will be out in the December edition of the ABA Journal.
Kudos to Deputy Managing Editor, Molly McDonough (@Molly_McDonough) and the rest of the ABA Journal Staff for putting the Blawg 100 together each year. It’s efforts like this which fuel the continued growth in legal blogging.
