Last year I wrote about the ABA’s annual list of the top 100 legal blogs – the ABA Journal Blawg 100 – asking readers to vote for their (and my) favorite blogs for 2010.

I repeat that request this year with the benefit of being able to ask you to vote for my blog as well.  I was very honored to be included on this year’s list.  (And, yes, I do require external validation.) Thank you very much to anyone who nominated me.

You are required to register in order to vote. This apparently is to prevent ballot-stuffing. But it only takes a moment, and I would very much appreciate your vote.  You can find the link here.

I note that I am joined on this list by many of my own favorite blogs, including Associate’s Mind, DA Confidential, Defending People, Federal Criminal Appeals Blog, MyShingle, New York Personal Injury Law Blog, Not Guilty, Simple Justice, Tempe Criminal Defense, and The Criminal Lawyer.

  1. Just remember, you’re competing in the Criminal Justice category against lots of other great criminal defense bloggers, so winning is not the most important thing. Making sure the prosecutor bloggers lose is the most important thing.

  2. Congrats, Jamison – after all of your shout outs to so many bloggers, myself included, it is terrific to see your wonderful blog in the spotlight.

  3. Yep, congrats Jamison, definitely deserved.
    Curious, Mark Draughn, why is it so important prosecutor bloggers lose? Is it because everything we say is inherently wrong and unworthy? If so, we’ll lose on the merits, no? Or is it simply that because we’re prosecutors we are also bad people? Nope, can’t be that because you don’t know me. I try very hard in my blog, and my daily practice, to work as collaboratively as possible with defense lawyers so, quite frankly, it irritates me to see this kind of knee-jerk, anti-prosecutor attitude. Heaven forbid the world of blog readers actually get insight from both sides…

  4. D.A., I’m sorry. I was just kidding, but I guess my tone didn’t make that clear. You’re right that I don’t know you, but I know your blog and read it all the time. You tell great stories — your “Holding Hands with Evil” series was truly spellbinding and one of the best series of posts I’ve read all year. Good luck.

  5. Dammit, now I feel like an idiot for over-reacting. Talk about knee jerk reaction…! I’ll blame it on being stuck in a conference for three days. D’oh!

  6. Congratulations. It is great that the ABA has finally recognized such an intelligent and well-written blog.
