Published on 05/01/2013 By Brian Inkster

… On 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. One year ago I looked back at the first year of The Time Blawg – One Year On. Two days ago I looked back at what went on during the second year of The Time Blawg with specific reference to Social Media and give my thoughts […]

Travels through the Blawgosphere: A New Series Materialises

Published on 02/05/2012 By Brian Inkster

… There have been some interesting blog posts in the blawgosphere over the past week about the practice of law. I have tweeted links to some of these. But I thought it might be nice to do an occasional review of such posts at The Time Blawg which is, after all, here to look at […]

What Blawgers can learn from Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson

Published on 18/02/2012 By Brian Inkster

… In my first post of the year I made reference to blogging by Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson as depicted on the BBC Television series. For ease of reference I will repeat what I blogged in that post:- “… on Sherlock – A Scandal in Belgravia (BBC One) it was revealed that Sherlock Holmes […]

Flawging lawyers come out of their Chambers

Published on 04/01/2012 By Brian Inkster

… The other day, in my roundup of 2011 on The Time Blawg, I suggested that perhaps 2011 would be remembered for the great flawging debate. I went on to blog:- I was brave enough to put my head above the parapet and suggest there might be some business advantage to be gained by blogging: […]

The Time Blawg – One Year On

Published on 02/01/2012 By Brian Inkster

… One year ago yesterday, on 1 January 2011, The Time Blawg materialised. I blogged then:- I look forward to posting on The Time Blawg in 2011 and beyond, inviting guest bloggers, receiving comments and encouraging debate at a time when the legal profession is going through many changes. I was not entirely sure where […]

Blawging with M’Learned Friends

Published on 20/11/2011 By Brian Inkster

… In my post on Blawgers and the Inquisition I suggested that lawyers should perhaps utilise their skills in drafting written pleadings when preparing a blog post and ensure that there is little for other blawgers to attack. Otherwise they should be prepared for criticism and will have no one to blame but themselves. But […]

Blawgers and the Inquisition

Published on 18/10/2011 By Brian Inkster

… Emotions appear to have been running high on Twitter and the Blawgosphere following publication of my last post. I managed to avoid becoming too embroiled in the Twitter exchanges over it as I was offline for most of the week holidaying in Malta. Whilst I was in Malta I visited The Inquisitor’s Palace in […]

I Blawg. You Flawg. Period?

Published on 31/07/2011 By Brian Inkster

… Is Blawging for business purposes black and white? That appears to be the view of many commentators on my post on The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room. There are blawgers and there are flawgers. That is there are the ‘serious’ law bloggers who do not dream of blogging for business purposes and then there […]

I thought the Blawgosphere was a friendly place :-(

Published on 18/07/2011 By Brian Inkster

… I was surprised and saddened by the way comments on my last post (The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room) degenerated into unwarranted personal attacks by Blawgers against other Blawgers… I thought the Blawgosphere was a friendly place As Lucy Reed tweeted:- Those commentators clearly had not taken the advice of Siobhain Butterworth at #LawBlogs […]

The Elephant in the #LawBlogs Room

Published on 04/06/2011 By Brian Inkster

… I had the pleasure of attending the second #lawblogs event in London on 19th May. The event has, not surprisingly, already been covered in blog posts by other attendees. The ones I have picked up on (there may be others) are:- Michael Scutt: The Future of Legal Blogging Dylan White: A tree in the […]
