Coming Soon by Rebecca Wilson I’m so excited to announce that my first ebook, The Legal Side of Blogging: How Not to get Sued, Fired, Arrested, or Killed will be released on Amazon next week! I’ve been blogging since 2009 and I wanted to write a book by a blogger for bloggers about the legal issues that come with having a blog. This book is a combination of multiple research projects on the legalities of blogging that I’ve done over the last two years. This books combines the findings of those… [read post]

For the past six months, I have been tracking the popularity of my blog Cruise Law News (CLN) on Avvo / Alexa Top Legal Blogs.  When I first started looking at the rankings, CLN was the 55th most popular law blog. Today, CLN cracked Avvo's list of the top ten (10) most popular law blogs.  I started blogging in mid-September last year after joining the LexBlog family.  LexBlog's CEO and blog guru Kevin O'Keefe counseled me not to be narcissist and get caught up in popularity… [read post]

Very interesting post from our friends over at Hubspot explaining what blogging can do for your business. I am an analytical person and always enjoy some empirical data to back up an argument. All too often, I think that blogging is pushed onto the legal community as something that needs to be done, but lawyers without a lot of online marketing experience don't understand why. Here are some numbers from Hubspot's study to convince you why your firm needs to be actively involved with blogging: A… [read post]

The Atkins Diet In the early 1970’s a man by the name of Robert Atkins developed a diet method that would allow men and women to lose extra fat, this diet became known as the Atkins diet. This diet consists of little to no carbohydrates and usually a higher consumption of proteins. The main goal of the Atkins diet is to consume foods that will allow the human body to burn fat for energy rather than the usual carbohydrates for energy. Because carbohydrates are limited fats and proteins replace… [read post]

A blog posting about blogs?  Go figure! Since 2007, the American Bar Association has listed its favorite 100 “Blawgs.”  (The term “blawg” originated with Denise Howell, an attorney at the Reed Smith firm.)

Blog posts reinforce your expertise and reputation I found this article on CNN’s website: ‘How can small companies make money from social media?’, and it made me start thinking about whether social media is a business for law firms. I joined LinkedIn and Ecademy back in 2004. I now have profiles on Xing, Plaxo, Facebook, Elysiants,, Martindale-Hubbell Connected and several other sites too. Joining these sites has been an important step in improving my networking activities,… [read post]

Earlier this year, I first learned of Avvo's "Top Legal Blogs" while reading a solo blogger lamenting that his law blog fell out of Avvo's top 10 law blog list.  I was intrigued by the rankings and began to read the top blogs to try and figure out why they were so popular. Some of the blogs were really interesting and I began to follow them on a regular basis. Some were dreadfully boring, or at least I thought so.  All of the blogs had been publishing for many years.   Unlike the… [read post]

While scanning my Twitter feed, I came across a tweet by Kevin O'Keefe: We Honor the Fallen: Past ABA Journal Blawg 100 Entries Which Have Departed It led to a feature related to The 5th Annual ABA Journal Blawg 100 on the original 100 blawgs and the 23 that have stopped publishing. The ABA Journal started their Blawg 100 in 2007, the same year the Library of Congress started harvesting blawgs. I loved their opening paragraph: Blogs are ephemeral creatures. While some endure… [read post]

The Effect of Mouth Alcohol on Breathalyzers The most common way that Utah police agencies are able to gain their probable cause for making a DUI arrest is through the use of  a breathalyzer.  Utah law enforcement uses the Intoxilyzer 8000 as their machine of choice, but is such a machine flawless?  The answer is a simple no. A breathalyzer’s results can be manipulated or altered in a number of ways.  One of the most common means of causing a breathalyzer to return incorrect results is by… [read post]

What is the Principle of Criminal Lenity? There is a long standing principle in Utah criminal law that if a new law is passed which reduces a criminal penalty that a criminal defendant gets the benefit of that law so long as he has not been sentenced.  This means that if you are charged with a third degree felony in January.  In February the legislature makes the crime a class B misdemeanor.  In July you plea guilty or are found guilty by a jury.  When you are sentenced you can only be convicted… [read post]

Over the years, has managed to publish some great content. From tips on writing a demand letter to op-eds on the plight of recent law school grads– our writers have hit on some great topics.

Attorneys often ask us for suggestions on good blog topics and titles. As it turns out, it’s a… [read post]

No doubt, topics will include guidance on professionalism, office management, business development and business ethics. While these topics are certainly vital to the success of a small law business, they… [read post]

OK time to brag a bit.  Today my blog was added to Avvo's "Top Legal Blogs."  Cruise Law News is currently the 55th most popular law blog in the United States.  The blog has been the highest climbing law blog this year.   For bloggers like me, that's exciting news.  Blogs are vehicles for education and ultimately social and political change.  The higher ranked a blog becomes, the greater the opportunity for it to be read.

For some time in 2009, the Construction Law Monitor published an “Around The Web” post each Friday, highlighting some of the top construction law updates around the web that week.   We fell off the wagon a bit as 2009 came to a close, but starting this week we’re bringing the feature back. A lot of the Around The Web material will come from my personal Google Reader Shared Items Feed.   You can subscribe to its RSS directly. This week, there was a great deal of Chinese Drywall issues in the… [read post]

In December of 2010, I decided to enter the Blawg world.  At the time I had no idea how to even begin.  After some research, I found the web hosting service iPage which has great step-by-step instructional material. With no prior experience, I was able to create a domain name and set up my account in less than an hour.  It is incredibly cheap to maintain a blog site.  I pay iPage about $4 per month for hosting my site—which includes everything basic plus some bells and whistles.  The service… [read post]

Supperblogger Ron Coleman of Likelihood of ConfusionTM fame reviews here my post of Justia's 50 Top Intellectual Property Law Blogs of all time, found here.Ron asked what Justia's criteria are for the selection.   The answer is that I am not exactly sure, but that I believe that it is raw, gross traffic.   My post of the 50 Top IP Law Blogs of All Time was taken from the Justia Blawgsearch under the Intellectual Property category, where popularity is measured daily, weekly, monthly and all… [read post]
