The December 2007 cover story on the ABA Journal featured the "Blawg 100" - the top blawgs written by attorneys, ranging from our favorite law practice management blogs to "gossip, rumor and innuendo".
Some legal 'blawgers', however, noticed that many insightful blawgs were omitted from the list not because of their content, but because they were not authored by attorneys. Harvard blogger Amy Campbell and Edge Group Founder Patrick McKenna both commented on the obvious omissions. Kevin O'Keefe summarized a number of blogger's not-so-positive reactions to the list here.
I've been a member of the ABA for seven years, and a contributor to the ABA's Law Practice Management Magazine for the past five years. I hope that next year they consider expanding their review to at least paying members of their association.
Does anyone else find this odd?
