When the ABA Journal selected the inaugural Blawg 100, they faced a challenge. There were then between 2,000 and 3,000 legal blogs, or blawgs. Mistakes were made. Among the top 100, the ABA Journal included Blawg Review -- a participatory law blog “carnival” that takes submissions and compiles a weekly list of the best ones.
While we appreciated the recognition, those involved with this weekly carnival of law blogs knew that being named one of the top 100 law blogs was really a misnomer for Blawg Review. It's not actually a law blog but, rather, a project that features the best of the legal blogosphere every week--and not even on this blog. A different law blogger hosts Blawg Review each week. This blog is simply the "basecamp" where followers of the Blawg Review project can see who's hosting this week and in the weeks and months ahead, where one can easily find links to past issues, and learn how to get involved by hosting or submitting and recommending excellent law blog posts for the recognition they deserve.
We're pleased that so many law blogs that have hosted Blawg Review are included in this year's ABA Journal Blawg 100, namely:

Those of us who work behind the scenes here are even more proud than when Blawg Review, itself, was inadvertently named one of the best law blogs.
