Get your blog on -- without a monkey on your back

Carolyn Elefant has some sage words of encouragement to lawyers who want to blog -- but fear the spectre of multiple, daily deadlines. Citing her recent article for GP Solo, Elefant writes:

"I realize that many serious bloggers advise that a blog can't succeed without multiple, regular postings or that you can't optimize the benefits of a blog without reading feed from dozens.  I disagree. Whether it's blogging or exercise or saving money any other new habit one wants to acquire, I don't think you always need to go all out to realize the benefits.  Doing what you can is certainly better than doing nothing at all ..."

This is just a taster -- read her proof of concept here. For what it's worth, I agree -- my work here and here makes it impossible for me to update my personal blog daily. But I still find it valuable to have a soapbox at the ready and an opportunity to write about my professional life. If you're interested in blogging, or if you're asking yourself, "Why blogs?" I urge you to go for it.
