Thanks for the kind words on my Blawg Review. Next time I'll remember to use the half clad women like displayed in your ads here.

Hey Kevin - sorry if you feel my critique was a bit blunt and/or that you seem to have taken it personally. While your post seems to be a fine Blogging 101 entry, the fact remains that it's a terrible Blawg Review entry. From the Blawg Review website: "Each weekly issue of Blawg Review is made up of article submissions selected from the best recent law blog posts."

Your entry doesn't include posts from other legal blogs over the past week. Instead, it features articles and links about blogging in general. As I say, seems a fine "Welcome to the World of Blogging" piece, but it's not even close to being what Blawg Review is ostensibly about.

And as for our apparently reprehensible ads featuring half-clad women, well, we make no apologies about the fact that we try to make a smattering of coin while having fun with our site. If anything, I'd be more offended by how skinny Kiera looks in that ad, rather than by the fact that she's scantily clad.

In gest Seth with my comment on your ads and I've violated a key rule of blogging, that be to blog with thick skin.

Understand the liberty I took with the terms of Blawg Review - intent was to expand horizons of lawyers as to what lawyer blogs can be. From what I can tell it's been fairly well received.
