Doug,

You are right! I forgot that Kevin updated that list this year. I got caught up in the nostalgia of the list that I put out this time last year, and Kevin's that came out about the same time. I thought it would be good to see what happened in the 12 months that followed.

I also think that some of the blogs definitely have ongoing value, and I'm glad that you continue to keep both of your old blogs up for us to find. I also think your suggestion to Kevin keeping and archival version of the blogs available is also a good idea. I'm wondering if the bloggers would allow the archived version to remain, though. I can imagine that some of them would object to it continuing to be available, while others (like yourself) would like to keep it available for others to find well after the last post was written.

Great work.

I think you used the November 2008 report from Kevin instead of the more recent June 2009. http://kevin.lexblog.com/2009/06/articles/large-law/state-of-the-amlaw-200-blogosphere-june-2009/

My two dead blogs were in the earlier one and not in the later one. David Hobbie's Caselines kept the Goodwin Procter entry alive.


As the blogger behind two of the dead blogs (KM Space and Real Estate Space), I thinks its okay to end a blog. Focus changes, careers change. Every story has an end.

What surprised me was how many are no longer available. (To correct your list, KM Space and Real Estate Space are both still available.) Its a doubly hard result to stop blogging and to take all the blog content down.

In my view, if you are going to stop, keep the blog up for a while with a message that you have stopped blogging.

I had the advantage of using the free blogger platform so keeping the content up does not cost me anything. Even if you are hosting your own blog, the hosting fee is only a few dollars a month.

I wonder if Kevin and LexBlog offer an archive rate to keep a blog online but with no new content (or comments) being published?

Check out the Alexa ratings on these blawgs.

remains active, but it's got an Alexa rating over 9,000,000, meaning that it gets maybe a handful of visitors a week.

Great list. As safety consultants, we read legal blogs for any workplace safety litigation. Although not necessarily legal related, The OSHA Underground blog has been taken down due to workplace safety "legalities". A shame as it was a good thought provoking source for regulatory news.

Interesting update to the list!

To me, blogging will always be a bit counter-culture. "Firm blogs" (particularly group blogs) are probably fighting an uphill battle. Lawyers at firms may get excited and decide to blog, but that's a different story. Those that have a passion will probably continue to do it, but it will always be driven by individuals (or by relatively small groups..even within a large firm).

At the end of the day, blogs are transient. All blogs, even 3 Geeks ;-)

This is fascinating.

There is a terrific discussion on menwithpens.ca about the future of blogging.

I guess only the future will tell us if blogging is the wave of the future, or just a wave.
