Decided. Okay, okay, decided a little later than we wanted but hey, it takes time to read a lot of interesting blogs. So, now, in January rather than December, we hereby announce the Top 25 Minnesota Blawgs for 2011.
The decisions are never easy. This year’s winners run the gamut from blogs with multiple contributors to those with one, some big firm lawyers, some solo practitioners. Some blogs target the general public, while others are written for the legally-trained audience, covering family, criminal, employment, estate and probate, securities and patent law. Our winners include new blogs as well as repeat winners.
What were our criteria? In addition to content, we evaluated design and ease of navigation. We liked blogs with regular posts, even if the posts were monthly versus multiple times per week.
Lawyers are communicators so it is not surprising to see more and more lawyers beginning to blog. We all benefit from their efforts; more information, about more topics, demystifying the law for all. Congratulations to all of our winners. Start reading, then spread the word.
