Dennis Kennedy has handed out his “Best of Legal Blogging” Awards for 2005. Read about it here. Benefitsblog received an honorable mention in the category of “Best Practice Specific Legal Blog.” Marty Schwimmer’s The Trademark Blog took first place. Excerpt from his post on the awards:
The Trademark Blog won this award last year and, even though I wanted to move to a different winner, the fact is that The Trademark Blog remains the model of a practice-specific blawg. Marty covers trademark law with a great eye for compelling material, his trademark wit and lots of pictures. I said last year: “The Trademark Blog is a great example of a way lawyers can speak in a plain voice to both a legal and non-legal audience in an engaging way.” Two other practice-specific blogs I wanted to single out this year are Dennis Crouch’s widely-acclaimed Patently-O blog and Janell Grenier’s always interesting Benefitsblog. Both are great examples of ways to do practice-specific blogs.
Many thanks, Dennis. (Read about Dennis’s transformation from tax lawyer to technolawyer in this article.)
