ABA Blawg Voting Ends...

...and Blog Emperor Caron, who seems to care about these things, has the results.  The most striking thing about the results to my mind is this:  although Blog Emperor Caron repeatedly harangued his readers to please, please, please vote for his blog, he garnered just 80 votes, while the proprietor of this blog, who never once mentioned this poll, got 35 votes without even trying (thanks to loyal readers who went to the trouble).  Draw your own conclusions!

Since you really wanted to know which blogs by law professors had the most traffic,

Blog Emperor Caron will tell you.  But he omits the key statistic:  average visit length!  Could it be because mine is generally one minute thirty seconds, and his is only thirty seconds?   Eat your heart out, Paul!

A new look for the blog

There are still some kinks to be worked out, including the fact that a very old post about Illinois admissions has showed up at the top.   Patience please!  Thanks.

"Why Tolerate Religion?" Finally Appears in...

...Constitutional Commentary (the Spring 2008 issue just came out a month or so ago)Given the substantial interest in the SSRN version, I thought I'd note it's finally out, citable etc.  I may yet turn the article into a short book, so more feedback is also welcome.

"Why Blogs Are Bad for Legal Scholarship"

It turns out that this little throwaway piece I wrote for a Yale Law Journal Pocket Part symposium several years ago remains "the most popular item" on the Pocket Part site.  I guess it is being viewed by lots of angry bloggers or non-blogging skeptics or both!

ABA Journal 2nd Annual List of "Top 100" Blawgs

I do appreciate that the ABA Journal has listed this blog two years in a row among its 'top 100' law-related blogs, especially since the ABA Journal link directs a decent amount of traffic here.   I am always amazed at how many of the blawgs on their list I've never heard of, and perhaps just a tad dismayed at how bad some of the blawgs are that they do list--but to each his own!  If it weren't a slow news day, I wouldn't even post this notice, but, alas, no real news today! 

In any case, my thanks to the ABA Journal for the continued link and exposure.

UPDATE:   I guess if I thought any of this mattered, I would do this.  But I don't.  So don't bother.  Just keep reading.  Thanks.
