This article was originally written in September 2009 for Plugged In Lawyer, a blog about social media for lawyers.
Having a hard time wrapping your lawyer brain around the idea of blogging? I ran into a very lawyerly white paper called Blogging For Laywers, complete with footnotes!
Back in the day, I wrote long briefs and footnotes were one of my particular talents. My brain doesn’t think in footnotes anymore. My brain thinks in links these days. Nevertheless, I still recognize beautiful footnotes when I see them, and this article struck me as a nice bridge for lawyers who don’t yet think in links.
While you’re at it, check out the author’s blog at Delaware Litigation. He writes a beautiful, classic lawyerly blog on the topic of what else? Delaware Litigation, of course. Not a topic that I personally could write passionately about day after day, but Francis does a beautiful job and has been recognized for his efforts by LexisNexis.
