I've been thinking of starting a blawg in a hopeless attempt to drag my firm kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

In all seriousness, have a Happy Thanksgiving.


Enh. It's enough that a blog serves whatever purpose *you* want it to be. Write for yourself, not others.


I see so many "blawgs" (ewww) in which the writers tell a bit too much about cases they are working on for comfort.

Does anyone think about their employers finding out and perhaps losing a job?

I know if I were a client and I ran across some of these sites, I'd be livid.


Oh having said that, the whole "Blogbook" idea is just another way for lawyers to prove thay they're really quite annyoing (and I can say that because I have a law degree). Must we overanalyze everything?

Revealing too much about a client has been a concern of mine as well. It's why I don't write about cases/clients/colleagues. I tend to think that, someday, someone is going to violate a client's confidence by writing one of these blawgs.

As for overanalyzing things, I think that there is some merit in discussing a good way to do things, so long as it doesn't overshadow the actual doing (that sounds a little too zen and cryptic for my liking). It would be like asking someone to look at your personal blog and give criticism, something I've done.
