Why I Think Your Blog Sucks


Free: 10 Things the Best Law-Firm Website Designs Have in Common

For seven years, Lawyerist has published an annual list of the best law firm websites. Now, you can find out what they have in common.

I am going to be presenting at Avvo’s 2013 Lawyernomics conference in Las Vegas in April. (You should come. Whether or not the conference is awesome, Vegas sure will be.) As I have here, in the past, I will be talking about why most law blogs are awful. If you want a preview, I talked to Merrilyn Tarlton of Attorney at Work, and she posted five of my reasons why your law blog probably sucks:

  1. You think it is just a marketing tool.
  2. You’re not doing it enough.
  3. You are writing in isolation.
  4. You don’t read and comment on other blogs.
  5. You’re [too] focused on SEO.

For my full explanations, read “Why Your Blog Sucks” on Attorney at Work.

Hope to see you in Vegas!

    I’m not sure I’ve ever read a law blog that didn’t suck. Do you have any examples? I’m serious. What are we striving to here?

    • Absolutely. Popehat, Simple Justice, the Volokh Conspiracy, Above the Law, the Legal Satyricon, and on and on. There are plenty of great law blogs out there.
