So, what were you doing one year ago? If you said that you were looking at this blog, you were nearly the only ones.  (For the first "real" post, click here.)

But sometime over the past week, this blog celebrated its first anniversary. Frankly, I hadn’t given it much thought since I’m more excited about the plancourtesy morgue file "birthday cake"s for this blog in the future, rather than looking back.


But I would be remiss if I didn’t extend my thanks to a variety of people for allowing this blog to achieve the success it has so far and thrive.


These include: my current employer, Pullman & Comley, LLC and all the terrific staff and co-workers there for allowing me to expand the blog (and my prior law partner, Peter Stein, who supported the blog from its inception); Kevin O’Keefe and the dedicated team at LexBlog who have been true partners; numerous bloggers (too numerous to mention by name, particularly for fear of leaving someone out) for their support; you, the reader, for your continued trust; and lastly, but most importantly, my wife and family. 


Over the last year, I’ve tried to keep true to its mission: Provide the human resource community and employers with information regarding new and noteworthy developments in the labor & employment law area in Connecticut. And fortunately, because of feedback from you and the numbers that you are visiting this site, I hear that the blog is fulfilling that mission.


But, if you’ve never left a comment or sent me an e-mail, I’d love to hear from you directly. Drop me an e-mail or use the contact link at the top of the page to let me know one thing about the blog your love or hate. Or let me know a topic you’d like to see discussed. Skip the specific questions or asking for legal advice; due to ethics rules, I can’t respond.


In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing this.


Warmest regards.
