I will just pretend that I’ve been tagged by Scott for this latest meme making the rounds of the blawgosphere.
The rules are simple: name 5 blogs I read and tag 5 blawgers. Note the subtle difference: 5 blogs, not blawgs.
So, without further pontification, as is my wont, here are 5 blogs I read that you should too:
Odd Time Signatures
Fire Joe Morgan
Connecticut Local Politics
Hot Chicks With Douchebags (Yeah, yeah. It’s funny. Sue me.) (Also, probably NSFW.)
Windy, I’d include you, but you’re practically a blawger.
Now, time to tag 5 blawgers:
Bennett, Skelly, KennyL, Randazza and my favorite female blawger.
Finally. I was beginning to think that CT lawyers were going to continue to shun the web and the blawgosphere. I just stumbled across this new blog today, creatively titled the Connecticut Criminal Lawyer Blog. Written by a solo, Nicholas Adamucci, the blog has a few informational posts, but nothing “bloggy” yet. Hopefully, he’ll get around to writing blog posts and not just regurgitating statute provisions. Unfortunately, comments are not enabled, so maybe he’ll see the traffic from here.
From a former public defender, now doing something else in the law, entitled flotant.
Two new blogs on the scene: Judgment Day and Exposed. Check ‘em out! Both have been added to the blogroll.
Just wanted to give you guys a heads up that the other blog that I run – Public Defender Stuff – will be hosting Blawg Review for the second time. PD Stuff hosted Blawg Review a year ago, also on MLK day. This year we once again received the honor of hosting it on MLK day, which is Monday.
Blawg Review is a peer-review blog carnival, which essentially highlights worthy posts written in the past week by law bloggers that generally fit within the theme of the host blog and are fit for inclusion.
Blawg Review benefits from the widest possible participation and relies on submissions and recommendations from all law bloggers, and many of our previous hosts continue to be our strongest contributors.
So if you have a post that you think should be featured or have read one that should, go ahead and submit it following the guidelines and procedure. Don’t forget to check in on Monday for edition #143.
It’s holiday meme time. I got tagged by Scott (who appreciates integrity) who was tagged by Carolyn (who appreciates passion) who was… well, you get the picture.
Why a good fight? Because it makes practicing that much more fun. When you’re going up against someone with passion and integrity, you’re going up against someone who knows the law and will advocate strongly for it. It makes you prepare better and makes you feel like you have something invested in the outcome. If you’re invested, you perform better. Can’t imagine any other way of practicing.
So bring it on. Yeah, I’m talking to you. You know who you are.
Now, my turn to tag:
The rules are that you have to start a post with “lawyers appreciate…” and then indicate what, exactly, it is that you appreciate.
I tried this a long time ago, but solo projects never work. It’s a good thing, then, that three criminal defense blawgers decided to start the Practical Blawgosphere Wiki. It went live on December 8, but took some time getting running. Go ahead and take a look, add stuff if you want, or just bookmark it and go back to it when its more developed.
The point of the Wiki is to be a free resource for practical blawgers and just anyone in general. The wiki will be on the horizontal nav menu above from now on.
