As I approach the three-year anniversary of this blog (stay tuned for more details), it’s certainly touching to receive accolades for this blog. 

Each year, LexisNexis “honors a select group of blogs that set the online standard for a given industry.” Amazingly, the Connecticut Employment Law Blog is a nominated candidates for the LexisNexis Top 25 Business Law Blogs of 2010.

The list is impressive.  I’m particularly fond of Doug Cornelius’ Compliance Building blog.  But in contests such as this, there is no room for compromise.  I need to enlist your help.

You see, apparently LexisNexis wants readers to voice their support of their favorite blogs.  Since Doug has already sent out a call to his readers to support his blog; I know readers of this blog can do better.

While Doug is willing to "sit back and take the consolation prize: the honor of being nominated", I think we have a shot to take this. Sure, we’re up against the WALL STREET JOURNAL, and HARVARD LAW SCHOOL, but…

Ok, I know we’re not fooling anyone, but if you’d like to say a good word about the blog, I’d be grateful.  Lexis Nexis invites you to comment on the announcement post at either of the following links:

To comment, you have to register. Registration is free and supposedly does not result in sales contacts (though I’d use one of your backup e-mail addresses just in case). The comment period for nominations ends on October 8, 2010. They don’t say how they will end up selecting the top 25 out of the nominees other based on their review and your comments.
