More Reasons to Read and Write Blogs

Why write for a blog? Evan Schaeffer writes at least two law-related weblogs, Illinois Trial Practice Weblog and Notes from the (Legal) Underground. Now he also has a contract to write a book about an element of trial practice. In this posting, he attributes the publisher’s offering him a book deal to the visibility his weblogs have given his publications.

Why read blogs? We are bombarded with press releases and other sales material from legal publishers. If this press release about a new de-duplication feature for Westlaw News search results had not been featured in the Library Stuff weblog, I might have missed it.
