Blawg Review

It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

It's Not About You

If you're ever hosting Blawg Review, it's best to keep in mind that it's not about you. No, really, it's not about you.

Charlie Green, our friend and mentor, co-author of The Trusted Advisor and moderator of the Carnival of Trust, said it best.
Improving credibility can take a long time; gaining credentials, earning degrees, publishing, getting references, learning presentations and speaking.

Lowering your self-orientation is a life’s work—it’s hugely powerful to be able to focus on others in times of stress, but easy? Not that one.
It wasn't easy for the host of Blawg Review #272.

Whenever a host of Blawg Review puts self-orientation ahead of the community of law bloggers, Professor Kingsfield is likely to make one of his impromptu appearances here to school the insubordinate host.

We really didn't want to have to ask Professor Kingsfield to lecture again and, apparently, he had other commitments today, so this is all we got.

For this video link, we'd like to thank 95years a blog about technology, media, culture and the law, which is hosting Blawg Review #273 next. We hope you'll come back and visit Blawg Review then.

In the meantime, be sure to read this month's Carnival of Trust, hosted today by Doug Cornelius, a Boston lawyer with experience in real estate, private equity, knowledge management, compliance and corporate ethics.
