Carolyn Elefant Reflects on Seven Years of 'My Shingle'

Last week, former Legal Blog Watch-er Carolyn Elefant announced that her My Shingle blog had turned seven years old, well beyond the average lifespan of even the most popular blogs. My Shingle, in Carolyn's words, seeks to "bring solo and small firm lawyers to the forefront of the profession, rather than leaving them at the margins."

Carolyn recalls that when she launched My Shingle in 2002, there were less than 100 blogs in existence. Today there are probably more than 100 blogs dedicated to "Twilight" alone, and millions of blogs overall.

I spoke with Carolyn about her seven years of blogging and the many things she has learned along the way. We also discussed the new wave of social media tools, and the extent to which she use and finds value in things like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. A video of our interview is below.
