Blogging about the Law

… As 2016 comes to a close I post my first blog post on this blog this year. Yes… The last blog post on here (and that was a guest post) was posted just over a year ago on 27 December 2015. So why has it taken me a year to blog? Did I give…

The Time Blawg – Two Years On (Part 2: Blawging)

… 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…

What Blawgers can learn from Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson

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 gets…

Flawging lawyers come out of their Chambers

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…

The Time Blawg – One Year On

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 my…

Blawging with M’Learned Friends

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 what…

Blawgers and the Inquisition

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 Birgu…

I Blawg. You Flawg. Period?

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 are…

I thought the Blawgosphere was a friendly place :-(

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…
