Barbie Car DUI and Blawger Balance

Barbie Car This morning, the Kentucky DUI Defense Lawyer blog has a post about an English gentleman who was convicted for DUI after he was pulled over driving a tricked-out pink electric Barbie car for toddlers.

It's good for a chuckle, especially if you click through to the article from the Telegraph, which has stereotypically wonderful British quotes like where the defendant, Paul Hutton (a former RAF officer) says, "I was very surprised to get done for drink-driving but I was a twit to say the least." And this from one of the magistrates before whom Hutton appeared: "This is most unusual. I have never seen the like of it in 15 years on the bench."  Yes, indeed, sir.

Having read the blog post and clicked through to the story, though, I couldn't help but wonder about the post. The underlying article is over a month old. And it had gotten a fair amount of more timely blog coverage, for example, here, here, and here. I'm guessing that Stephen J. Isaacs, the helmsman of the Kentucky DUI Blog, has just decided that the time has come to commit himself to posting something -- anything -- on the blog every day.  Prior to this week, posting was more sporadic, and the prior posts seems to be more substantive, like the one on what to do when pulled over on suspicion of DWI in Kentucky, or the one on variances in BAC measurements.

Legal Blog Watch, obviously, is not geared to ginning up law firm business.  For those blawgers who rely on their blogs to attract paying clients, how important is it to post regularly? How do you balance SEO concerns against the perceived "quality" of your posts? And do you ever think maybe the more you post the greater the likelihood someone will think you must have too much time on your hands to be a very good/dedicated lawyer?
