2010 ABA Journal Blawg 100 Highlights
Posted by Gwynne Monahan on December 20, 2010
The end of the year brings with it many things, like family gatherings, sledding or skiing and yes, awards. The ABA Journal’s Blawg 100 list is one of those awards, and we wanted to take blog post to point out a few.
If you’ve follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook, you’ve no doubt seen posts from 3 Geeks and a Law Blog. It covers any manner of topics related to the law, even law librarians, but we especially like its Elephant Posts, which poses a question each week and then posts responses, complete with the particular “perspective” of the commenter.
In the same category, lawbiz, there are a few others to note. We’ve tweeted and posted to Facebook links from all of them as they each offer something a little different, yet helpful or interesting, from the rest:
- 22 Tweets: An inventive use of Twitter. Each week, Lance Godard interviews a lawyer via Twitter. Follow the #22tweets tag and you’ll learn something new every week.
- Law21: Jordan Furlong’s often insightful, common sense commentary on practice management issues and the “revolution” of law. And what’s common sense commentary without advice? You get some of that from Law21, too.
- Legal Practice Pro: Common sense commentary with advice that has more of a technology and productivity bent.
- Lawyerist: Its call-it-like-they-see it approach covers all the bases.
- MyShingle.com: Written by Carolyn Elefant and geared toward the solo lawyer, of which there is a growing number. Practically anything you want to know about starting you own practice can be found on the site.
And since we’re “legal tech,” we often post from such ABA Journal Blawg 100 blawgs:
- Rick George’s FutureLawyer for useful gadget information.
- Robert Amrbogi’s LawSites for more in-depth information on Web improvements for lawyers and legal professionals.
Though we aren’t a Mac-only application (we run on Windows, too), we do enjoy Josh Barrett’s Tablet Legal blawg, which offers some really helpful iPad tips and tricks, not to mention apps.
A blawg to keep an eye on, if you aren’t already, is Ron Friedmann’s Strategic Legal Technology. He’s found the pulse of the shifting legal landscape, and shares.
We’d like to congratulate everyone who was nominated this year, and good luck!
