The ABA Journal each year puts out a list of the 100 law blogs that won the most online votes. In 2008, the top ballot-getter won 2,050; the last place blawg drew a mere 25.
The magazine has issued a call for "amici" comments:
Which blawgs should we include in our annual list of the 100 best legal blogs in December? We’d like your advice.
Tell us about a blawg you read regularly that you think other lawyers should know about. Keep it pithy—you have a 500-character limit. We’ll be including some of the best comments in our coverage.
Some additional tips:
• We’re not interested in “occasional” blawgs—blawgs you name should be updated at least weekly.
• We’ll ignore comments from authors suggesting their own blawgs. That’s just plain tacky.
• Campaigns to flood us with comments about a particular blog will turn us off. And you don’t want to do that, because the editors make the final decisions about what’s included in the Blawg 100.
Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than Friday, Oct. 2.
