Despite being wired in with most of the latest technology, since my firm has offices in both Ohio and New Jersey, it’s inevitable that I travel between the two states from time to time. This week I’m in the Columbus office, and made it a point to attend a lunchtime seminar on legal blogging, at the Columbus Bar Association offices. I like going to events like this because I can always learn something. It’s also a great way to meet other creative, successful, and like-minded attorneys, to steal their secrets (just kidding about the last part). 

The speaker was attorney Brad Wrightsel, who has authored the Ohio Estate Planning, Trust & Probate Law blog since 2006. For whatever reason (my guess is that it was a Microsoft issue), there was an Internet connectivity problem during Brad’s presentation, and he couldn’t access many of the blogs that he intended to use as examples. So he ended up using this blog during the demonstration—what a bonus.

And speaking of bonuses, I recently received word from the American Bar Association that they’ve included this blog in their prestigious directory of legal “blawgs.” I’m honored.
