We had a reader point out that the blawgsearch website has compiled rankings of the "most popular blawgs of all time. With our somewhat narrow focus on a particular state and a niche within a niche of employment law, we didn't expect to rate very high among all of the blawgs. We'd have just been happy to make the list. To our pleasant surprise, we are listed as the 51st most popular blawg of all time. After that sank in for a bit, we were slightly disappointed to have missed the top 50. Oh well.
The list of the top 200 can be found here. Quite a few of our own personal favorites are on the list. Notably, and above us: The UCL Practitioner and the Class Action Defense Blog. Just behind us: The Volokh Conspiracy. For whatever it's worth, we are the highest rated blawg devoted to wage and hour law, or, for that matter, employment law. And in the current month's ratings, we were number 33.
Blogging isn't for everyone, however. Under the "don't try this at home" tab, you might want to file away the recent sad story of Dr. Robert P. Lindeman, aka Flea, who anonymously liveblogged his medical malpractice trial, revealed a few things that would have been best left unsaid, and got caught, leading to a quick and substantial settlement that readers of his blog wouldn't have expected. Do any of your clients blog? Or any of your client's employees? You might want to find out before your jury gets sworn in.
