Austin leads top 10 blogging cities for lawyers

December 16, 2007

Top 10 lawyer blog citiesGuess that’s the reason why Austin Attorney Jamie Spencer is knocking them dead with his two law blogs.

A lot of people reading blogs means word of a lawyer sharing legal info and networking with real folks via a blog is going to spread quickly. Plus you have a healthy network of bloggers to meet via commenting on their blogs, blogging about a post of theirs, inviting them to your professional network at LinkedIn or just dropping them a simple email.

The top 10 list from the San Francisco Chronicle:

  1. Austin, Texas (15% of adults going on the Web to read or contribute to a blog in the past 30 days)
  2. Portland, Oregon (14%)
  3. San Francisco Bay Area (13%)
  4. Seattle (13%)
  5. Honolulu
  6. San Diego
  7. Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
  8. Columbus, Ohio
  9. Nashville, Tenn.
  10. Colorado Springs, Colo.

The areas of practice and locales for niche focused lawyer blogs are wide open. The ABA Journal and Justia’s BlawgSearch are currently indexing about 1,500 law blogs. Bet if I went there right now, I couldn’t find law blogs for 10% of the major areas of practice for these top cities. Family law, estate planning, real estate, criminal defense, bankruptcy, workers compensation, and employment law are areas of practice that are starved for good blogs published by a lawyer with expertise and passion.

Hard to believe lawyers are clownig around with static websites, yellow pages, and other outmoded means of marketing when the opportunity for tasteful, effective, and fun marketing is at their disposal.
