"I love myself, I want you to love me."
Those words, spoken in a 1990 smash hit with a title a bit too inappropriate to repeat, or even link to (we bet you can guess it though), sum up how we're feeling right now. No, the love part.
Oh, never mind.
We've done good work on this blog, and on the rest of our legal professionals blogs, this year. We've put up more content, refocused on the content that we think interests you, and as a result, our traffic is up and we made the ABA's big list. We love that the blog has evolved into a mix of practical tips and tricks, reviews, and discussions of Internet privacy, legal issues, and civil liberties.
Yes, we're very proud of ourselves. But we need your help with two things: voting and feedback.
Blawg 100: 24 Hours Left
It's the final countdown!
The last time we checked, FindLaw's Technologist was leading the Legal Tech category by more than forty votes. Sadly, since the ABA Journal hid the vote count on Friday, we've been unable to see how close we are to the end zone. Nonetheless, we're not going to prematurely celebrate like that Broncos player did earlier this season.
Do us a small favor: click over to the Blawg 100 page, vote for The Technologist (and while you're at it, for our consumer-focused Legally Weird blog, which is competing in the "For Fun" category). The site requires you to input an email address, to avoid the voting scandals of the past, but there is no complicated registration/confirmation/unsubscribe process, as far as we can tell.
It's the time of year for self-evaluation and making resolutions, and we need your help with that too.
Want more product reviews? Discussion of legal issues in the tech industry? Tips for tackling tech projects (like migrating email services)?
We want to hear from you, our dear acquaintances, for planning the New Year. Give us a shout-out on Facebook or Twitter with your requests for 2014, for this blog, for any of our other blogs, or with a song you think we should subtly reference in a future post. (If you weren't counting, there are three songs and one Arnold reference here.)
