With the holidays here, it’s time to say a quick thanks to all of you who have stuck with this blog for well over 6 years.

Earlier this month, the ABA Journal — the flagship publication of the American Bar Association — once again named this blog as one of the best law blogs in the country. It’s the fifth year in a row for the honor.

But even more special, this blog was among only 10 that have been added this year to the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame. According to the Journal, “. . . Daniel Schwartz consistently impresses us with concise and incisive analysis of the latest cases and issues to arise in employment law . . .”

“Wicked cool,” as we used to say growing up (and which I would say if I was a Boston employment blog.)

There was a round of voting for voters to choose which blog they liked the best, but that part of the contest always seemed a bit trivial to me.  I’ve held off on a blog post until the voting concluded because, well, after getting named to the “Hall of Fame” this year, I really didn’t need or want extra votes.

So where does this blog go from here? Cooperstown? Lifetime achievement awards? Disney World?

Well, for starters, I’m going to take a bit of time off on the blog until the new year. Of course, if I can’t resist writing you may see a blog post or two between now and then.

And after that? I’m in the early planning stages of a new chapter for this blog and the related (and growing) social media outlets.   My New Year’s Resolution is to try to create something that remains as fresh and vibrant as when we started in 2007.

So, stay tuned.  And thanks again.

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate and Happy New Year to everyone!
