The exciting part they tell me is the "ABAJournal.com has created four new features designed for busy lawyer/bloggers like [sic][me] and [sic][my] readers" the biggest one being:
Blawg Search: We've partnered with Justia.com, the leading legal information portal, to create a search engine covering all of the 2,600-plus blogs in our directory -- including yours. It's like Google for lawyers, pinpointing in an instant the most sophisticated and up-to-date commentary by legal professionals on any topic. Use the search box at the top of any of our pages (including our homepage: www.abajournal.com), and on the search results page click on the "Blawg Results" tab. Plus you can subscribe to an RSS feed of any search to follow the results in your feed reader.
They also have a news widgnet for stories and articles they publish at http://www.abajournal.com/stay_connected/item/headline_widgets/
They have three Twitter feeds you can incorporate into your page:
And there is the ABA Journal Facebook page:
Other attorneys who blog or "blawg" ought to look into adding their blog or blawg to the ABA Journal Blawg Directory. The reason is apparent from what is stated above; but what is more, blogs and blawgs have become great marketing and credibility builders for attorneys also used as a means of directing traffic to their websites. To acheive more exposure good blog/blawg directories are a "common staple" of the process.
