No. 449

In a little over a month, July 7, PLBT will have its second anniversary.  We will also be approaching post number 500 — 448 posts have been published to date. We made it to 300 on August 25, 2009.  Lets see whether we can put out 51 worthwhile posts in the next 37 days and hit 500 by July 7. That’s ten a week.

I hear that two years of steady blogging  surpasses the normal life span for most blawgs. What is the secret?  I think it is refusing to narrowly limit the scope of the blog.  Lawyers who try to write exclusively about their own practice and legal specialty run out of material before very long.

This has been an eventful year. Not that long ago we started promoting the blog on Twitter.  PittsburghLegal currently has 459 followers around the world, mostly lawyers, but also quite a few legal bloggers and publications. We hit the landmark of 450 Twitter followers a week ago.  It would be great to pass the milestone of 500 Twitter followers by July 7.

Pittsburgh Legal Back Talk was also syndicated recently as a featured blog on Network Pittsburgh under the Twitter nome de keyboard PittsburghLegal. Network Pittsburgh is a Link-in Group of local professionals with about 80 bloggers on various subjects.  There are about 25 featured bloggers.

Of course, none of this means anything unless people read and gain information from this blog.  This seems to be happening, so lets go onward and upward together into year three!
