For those of you in the legal sector who are torn about whether to keep blogging or to start one, I want to reassure you: Blog compulsively with your unique voice and angles and you can get plenty.
Through this blog, I quickly became a paid global influencer. Those associated with legal products and services around the world ponied up decent money to place their content on this site. Of course, that was identified as the native advertising it had been.
It also triggered my being hired for a 40-hour a week telecommuting job by a legal services startup in lower Manhattan.
I had posted on the lawyer in Connecticut who put a notice on Craigslist that newbie lawyers who were willing to pay him could shadow him and learn the law. Duh.
Just about every legal media outlet, ranging from the American Bar Association Journal to Abovethelaw.com, picked it up. The folks at the startup were impressed. That was at the height of The Great Recession so I felt totally blessed having regular work.
Also, this has been the platform for effortless networking. Among those I professionally befriended have been Kathryn Rubino, Joe Patrice, Will Meyerhofer and Mark Herrmann.
But, most importantly, posting on this blog trained me to think and push back like a lawyer. I always put out there the disclaimer that, no, I am not a licensed lawyer. But I position and package my legal terminology in such ways that no one has messed with me since 2006. At least not for longer than about 3.5 minutes.
It will be a honor if you continue reading my points of view.
