Some lawyers in this country get all the work for their law practices from their blogs. And their practices are growing. They have eliminated their yellow pages, they have eliminated their websites, and they do not do anything other than have a blog.
Their work is coming directly from people who need a skilled, caring, compassionate lawyer in the required practice area. And these people are finding that lawyer by doing searches on the Internet and finding the lawyer’s blog. On the lawyer’s blog they are also finding information that looks as nice if not nicer than what is on the lawyer’s website.
What you want to be able to say is: “I am only three years out of law school but I want to be the best-known and most well respected lawyer in my practice area in my community inside of three to five years.” There is no reason you cannot do that with the tools that you have at your disposal so long as you are passionate about the subject and you really want to make a difference. You will get more work than you can handle.
