Back in 2007, when I started this blog, the idea of being recognized as one of the best legal blogs in the country would have been a bit of wishful thinking.  After all, there are literally THOUSANDS of such blogs in existence. 

Flash Forward to 2009: The Connecticut Employment Law Blog has been named to the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100.  What is the Blawg 100? According to the ABA (American Bar Association) Journal — it represents "the best legal blogs as selected by the Journal’s editors."

This list is literally a who’s who in the legal world and contains many blogs that I routinely follow and which I highly recommend including the Wall St. Journal Law Blog, Above the Law, and SCOTUSBlog

So I am deeply humbled and honored to be on the list and thank various readers for submitting nominations to the ABA Journal for its review, including A Connecticut Law Blog author Ryan McKeen

The blog was named to the "Geo" category as having "all-around high-quality posts on topics mainly relevant to the people in their neck of the woods."

But now the fun begins. You, the reader, can vote for the "Best of the Best" blog at the ABA Journal site here.  Obviously, I hope you’ll give this blog a vote or two (and tell others to do so).  Right now, the Tex Parte Blog has gotten off to a very early lead, but I’m sure it’ll be no match for the power that a small state such as Connecticut can bring.

So, many thanks for your help in bringing this blog national attention and my thanks to my law firm for all its support.
