It's Sunday morning, so it's a good time to be a little self-indulgent. (As Dorothy Parker once said, "Well, that's enough about you. Let's talk about me.") Law blogs are hardly new; in fact, there's a term for them: "blawgs." They're not new in Ohio, either. The law school at the University of Akron has a site which discusses the subject, and gives the rundown on a number of blawgs. Some cover Ohio law generally, some cover specific areas, some just tell war stories. There's one by a young lawyer "with a strong interest in LGBT issues." My guess is that if you don't know what that stands for, you probably wouldn't be interested.
As I explain in the "About the Site" section, this is going to be a good bit narrower. It's also going to be a work in progress, especially aesthetically. There's a lot I want to do with the site, and it'll probably get a little dressier in a couple of months. One of the things I'd like to have a button that you can click to send me an email telling me whether you like this idea or pointing out when I goof up. I'll have that up soon.
Eventually, I'd like to use this site to set up sort of a forum for local lawyers to exchange cases, tips, stories, strategies, whatever. Pooled knowledge is a powerful thing. That's well down the road, though. For now, what you've got is me.
Well, that's enough self-indulgence. Powered by my second cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee (French Vanilla), on to the law.
