"Blegging" is the term used to refer to the act of using your blog to ask for a favor. Normally, I pay no attention to internet awards and even less to the American Bar Association, but I see that Walter Olson, my co-blogger at Point of Law, is in hot competition for best general law blog in the ABA Journal Blawg 100 for his blog Overlawyered, and needs some votes to pull into the lead on this, the final day of voting. You may have read Walter’s great posts on the Scruggs scandal, or you may have followed his blogging at Overlawyered over the years — he is one of the pioneers of legal blogging and Overlawyered is one of my favorite stops on the internet, right up there along with www.shredderchess.com. If you enjoy Walter’s Scruggsblogging and other writing, please visit http://www.abajournal.com/blawgs/blawg100 and cast your vote, it only takes a second.
UPDATE: As often happens, I got to thinking about this post after I posted it, and I neglected to mention the outstanding work of Ted Frank at Overlawyered, not to mention some great regular contributors like Jason Barney. It’s a truly fine site, consistently excellent.
