Congratulations to all of the ABA Blawg 100 nominees. I am especially happy for friends, colleagues and bloggers who were named to the ABA Journal Blawg 100 Hall of Fame: Greg Lambert, Toby Brown, Lisa Salazar and Ryan McClead at 3 Geeks and a Law Blog #3geeks. (The 4 geeks were honored despite the fact that they can't count. ;-)) and Bruce MacEwen of Adam Smith Esq @adamsmithesq. (I taught Bruce everything he no longer needs to know about legal research, when he was an associate at Shea & Gould in NY. )
I would also like to thank Allen Pusey and the editors of the ABA Journal for taking the time to focus on these labors of love, law and insomnia. Most of the legal bloggers I know have a "day job" and yet we write, often late into the night. I am honored to have my blog named to the 2014 Blawg 100.

“No longer to be confused as a fad or the realm of the tech-savvy, law blogs are rooted in the legal media landscape,” ABA Journal Editor and Publisher Allen Pusey said. “While traditional media sources often break news, law blogs dive deeper to offer insight into what the news means for clients, the legal profession and the public. They are sometimes-irreverent watchdogs of the bench and bar. And the ones on our list are well-written and, more often than not, entertaining.”
When advised of the nomination O'Grady responded "Who me? Irreverent?"
Seriously, I began this blog in 2011 because almost all of the legal bloggers covering legal research and legal information/technology issues were men. I just thought it was time to stand up and add a little "diversity of style and perspective" to the baritone chorus of "legal bloggers."
