American Bar Association’s Blawg 100

law blog 100 ABA.JPGA little over a month ago, I blogged about the honor of being included in the ABA’s Blawg 100 – 100 law blogs hand-picked by the editors of the Journal of the American Bar Association as their favorites.
This month, after the close of voting by members of the public, the ABA Journal handed out special awards based on voting by readers. I wanted to congratulate Abnormal Use for winning in “Torts.” I enjoy Abnormal Use’s substantive posts on product liability law, and I relish their lighter fare – from their interview with Phil Morris (aka “Jackie Chiles” of Seinfeld fame), to the pop art aesthetics of their favorite legally-themed comic book covers.
I also wanted to thank Eric Turkewitz. In the first and second Blawg 100 awards, the editors of the ABA Journal neglected personal injury lawyers and Eric’s on-line campaigning got the ABA Journal to pay attention to the great personal injury law blogs out there.
While it’s inevitable that in a subjective contest like this, some deserving blogs will be omitted, I don’t envy the work that the editors of the ABA Journal have to do in reading thousands of blogs and agreeing upon 100.
So thanks to Eric and the ABA Journal and congratulations to Abnormal Use. And let’s all keep on blogging for the Fifth Annual Blawg 100!
