Blawg Review

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

Roundup of the Carnivals

An amazing 135th edition of Carnival of the Vanities is up this morning at Conservative Dialysis with over 60 blogs reviewed. Earlier this week, Brian Gongol presented Carnival of the Capitalists, "the experimental edition" with a creative new format. And, yesterday, the medibloggers got together for Grand Rounds at Living the Scientific Life where the host is, ironically, ill.

It's good to see the continuing success of these "carnival" concepts. We encourage law bloggers to check out some of the other carnivals, and to experiment with making contributions of your best posts there as well as in our own Blawg Review. If a lawyer is writing about something of interest to doctors, for example, it might make sense to submit the post to Grand Rounds. If you're posting something on your blawg that would be of interest to a broader audience than law bloggers, consider submitting it to Carnival of the Vanities, or to Carnival of the Capitalists if it relates to business or economics.

And, above all, don't forget to submit your best posts each week to Blawg Review. Blawg Review #1 and Blawg Review #2 show how good this carnival blogging can be for lawyers, too, thanks to all those who submitted great posts. It's early days for the development of this concept for law bloggers, so we really appreciate all the support.

We're also encouraging participation in other carnivals, as well as Blawg Review. We've agreed to host Carnvial of the Capitalists right here on October 24th. And we're looking for just the right business blogger to host an upcoming issue of Blawg Review, too. Got any good ideas?

Update 04/21/05 From time to time, we'll get leading business bloggers to host Blawg Review, like Rob May at BusinessPundit, which will help connect lawyers and business. First, Anita Campbell, a lawyer and corporate counsel in past lives, has agreed to host Blawg Review on her well-regarded business blog Small Business Trends. Anita did a wonderful presentation of Carnival of the Capitalists, which she hosted recently.
