Interested in creating your own legal blog?

I have been thinking about the fact that the time I am able to commit to updating my blog on a weekly basis is not what it used to be. It's not always easy to find the time or content that is interesting enough to post for all to read.

While I haven't yet decided on the direction this blog will take, I was interested to read a short article from fellow blogger Mark Herrmann in the National Law Journal that appeared in my Newswire this morning.

In his article, "Blogging Lessons Learned" Mark discusses the pleasures and pains of creating and maintaining a legal blog (a.k.a. "Blawg") in the form of four lessons learned and provides details with each lesson.

The first lesson: "blogging about substantive legal issues -- is hard".
The second lesson: "blogging is personally satisfying"
