Nearly Half of Legal Blogs Still Alive and Kicking

•  National News     updated  2009/09/01 09:22


The ABA Journal reports that a blogger who has tracked 2,300 law blogs since 2000 says nearly half are still alive and kicking, and those that died had a fairly decent life span.

Tom Mighell, who writes the Inter Alia blog, told Lawyers USA that failed legal blogs lasted a respectable average of one year and 10 months. The number of new legal blogs peaked in 2005-2006, and since then there has been a decline in new debuts, he told the newspaper. Mighell is a senior manager at Fios Consulting, a Dallas electronic discovery firm.

Jones Day partner Mark Herrmann, writing for the Drug and Device Law Blog, was more pessimistic, speculating that many legal blogs likely die in less than a year. He became curious about the life expectancy of legal blogs when he noticed that the professors who oversaw Product Liability Prof Blog and the Civil Procedure Prof Blog had apparently given up their blogging duties.
