I’ve agreed to write a book for the ABA Law Practice Management Section on blogging, which is obviously geared towards lawyers. This blog was started 10 years ago on March 6th, and since then a lot of lawyers have discovered blogging. Surprisingly, the ABA hasn’t yet published a book on blogging.
I’d really appreciate your help.
I’d like to do more than cover the nuts and bolts of how to blog. I’d like to talk about how powerful a tool it is. And in that vein, you can help.
- Lawyers, let me know how reading law-related blogs has helped you in your practice.
- Non-lawyers, let me know how reading this blog (or any lawyer blog) has helped you.
- Anyone who reads this blog regularly and finds it useful in a way that should be conveyed to other lawyers now’s your chance to get that message out.
Anything you can throw my way would be much appreciated. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you don’t want me to use your name, or if you do.
P.S. If you want a better practice, start using the 80/20 Principle.
Awesome! This sounds like a great initiative, and I wish you the best of luck.
I really believe blogging can help a professional find a unique voice and a way to connect with many new people and form interesting new relationships. I think the key will be to show people how to not be overwhelmed by all the tools and blogs out there and to simply focus on the process and discipline required to blog regularly and truly engage with people and readers online.
I'm a student working on a project called Ridacto, which aims to use artificial intelligence to help attorneys create more bulletproof legal contracts. We're operating in a field where we're trying to reinvent the status quo and help people work smarter and more efficiently, and I believe blogging plays in the same space; helping people connect in new ways and deliver law more creatively and effectively.
Thanks for sharing, and good luck with the book. Let me know when it's ready!
