Last night, I had the pleasure of serving as a panelist for a Connecticut Bar Association event entitled Secrets of the Law Bloggers: The Benefits and Challenges of Writing a Law Blog. For those in attendance, I hope that the panel was interesting and informative.
Connecticut occupies an interesting position in the world of legal blogging. Law bloggers from Connecticut are noteworthy not only for the quality of their work, but for their longevity. I believe that all of the attorneys on the panel last night had been blogging for at least three years.
Personally, I found the panel very useful, as I took away a number of blogging tips that will improve Connecticut Sports Law. In addition, I finally had the opportunity to meet Connecticut’s top legal bloggers, Adrian M. Baron (The Nutmeg Lawyer), Ryan C. McKeen (A Connecticut Law Blog), Irene C. Olszewski (Connecticut Lesbian and Gay Law) and Daniel A. Schwartz (Connecticut Employment Law Blog). Although we had communicated electronically, many of us were meeting in person for the first time.
My sincere thanks to Tiffany Spinella and Danielle Angliss, the Labor & Employment co-chairs of the Young Lawyers Section Executive Committee of the CBA, for inviting me to participate in an excellent event. Also, a special thanks to my former colleagues Karen Daley and Regina von Gootkin for attending.
