Pittsburgh Legal Back Talk Turns 9.

No. 1,342

That’s right, 9.

That’s pretty old for a legal blog. Without insulting anyone, I have observed that most lawyer bloggers (Blawgers, so they say) drop off after about a year.  They apparently run out of ideas.  I have had dry spells from time to time, too. Everybody does.  But I never completely stopped writing. And I try not to write the same piece over and over in different format.

Some blawgers write about their cases.  I don’t — except an occasional reference in passing to a case long ago. Some do, like one public defender I recollect, who got into trouble for violating client confidence.

They greatest source of inspiration is reading other blogs.  I read one or more almost every day.  I am always looking for something fresh.  If I have picked up an idea or two from your blog and didn’t give you credit, I apologize for my thoughtless oversight.

It would be great to get close to 1,500 posts by this time next year, when we hit 10.  If you have an idea for something special to do on the 10th anniversary, I’d like to hear it.
