It's such a pleasure to write this blog, mainly because of you, my readers. I love your questions and comments, and enjoy being able to point employees in distress in the right direction. I know my fellow honorees on employer side feel the same about trying to help employers sort through the confusing tangle of employment laws. Here's what the ABA Journal says about this year's Blawg 100:
It's our lucky seventh time at this blog-ranking rodeo. Does luck come into play as we assemble our list? Perhaps. Maybe it's a lucky break for a blogger when one of its readers takes the time to write to us to make sure we give it serious consideration. There are thousands of legal blogs, after all.If you've been following this blog all for at least a year, you know what's coming. Now is the time to vote for the best of the best in each category. Screw You Guys, I'm Going Home has come close to the top, but hasn't quite made it to the very peak of the labor and employment law blogs yet. I need your help.
But really, it's a blogger's dedication, creativity and engagement with readers and the other minds of the legal blogosphere that make us take notice. We think our familiarity with these blogs ultimately makes us better legal journalists—and getting to know them might make you a better lawyer. At the very least, you might find kindred spirits who articulate the highs and lows of practice with wit and empathy.
If you think this blog is worthy, I need your vote. Go to the ABA website here. It takes about 30 seconds to register. Then go to the Labor & Employment category. Find Screw You Guys, I'm Going Home.
