How could I forget? I’ve also got a great mention from one of my early blogger friends, Mark Draughn of Windy Pundit fame. I feel loved.Share on Facebook
The blogosphere has changed since I started writing. In 2004, this was my private (for the whole world to see) journal. I was anonymous and it was easy to write what I thought and felt and how things were for me. I didn’t realize how funny I was until I read this post by Jamison Koehler. I read it and thought “Ha! That’s funny. Who wrote that?” Drue read it and said “you know that first post is all me, right? I am the one who said those funny things” Sure Drue, you get all the credit. I think Jamison is too kind, though. My grammar is frequently poor and I spell things wrong on occasion. I haven’t been all that great at keeping up my blogroll or paying it forward. My blog was just for me, but I’m glad that at least 6 people have gotten a kick out of it over the years. My issue now is how to turn the blog into a marketing tool, or even if that’s something I should do. I feel like not guilty is me, that should be enough of a marketing tool, right?
But more about me. Scott Greenfield at Simple Justice also including me in a little list of new and not so new, but maybe noteworthy, blogs. He has a caveat that states that not all of the blogs he lists are his ‘cup of tea’, which makes me a little nervous. It’s like saying “those pants make your ass look small” – but otherwise you have a huge ass. Maybe I am his cup of tea. Now I can stay up nights wondering if maybe Mr. Greenfield is my seventh reader.
If I get into double digit readership I’ll feel the pressure that Jamison is talking about. I’ll have to watch my grammar, and maybe my language. I’ll feel the need to be wittier and to make all sorts of deep remarks, maybe even write about THE LAW every once in a while. We’ll see.
For now, I’m happy that some people are happy with what I’ve been doing, just cause I like doing it.Share on Facebook
I am on the Hill, with a capital H, talking and listening and getting a bit frustrated with what we are hearing about comprehensive immigration reform. There is much political hand wringing on one side (mine) and gnashing of teeth on the other. We are listening to Representatives talk about the pros of immigration reform but with the republicans refusing to cooperate, it looks like no amount of logic or reason will work since the republicans are taking their toys and going home.
Btw, this is my first post using mobile blogger. I hope it works.Share on Facebook
That song is by Bob Dylan, right? I will out myself, I’m not a Dylan fan, but that song is fitting since I’ve made a huge decision and am moving my office back across the border to Maryland where I can actually practice criminal law again! Whoohoo!! The office is small (probably about the same size as my current space) but its not nearly as ugly. It’s a corner spot with great light, some great tenants and, well, I can practice law. I move in in a month. I am so excited since it means that I’ve made a full on commitment to get back into this mess. And what a lovely mess it is.Share on Facebook
