A YEAR DOWN THE ROAD
June 14, 2011 § 8 Comments
My hopes then were the same as they are now: that I could provide a way to communicate with lawyers about the way we do business in this district as well as how to do better chancery practice.
I have heard from lawyers throughout the state that they are reading this blog regularly and deriving some benefit and enjoyment. I have heard it from lawyers on the coast, in the Delta, Jackson area, Tupelo, Southaven, Vicksburg, Hattiesburg, both M.C. and Ole Miss law schools, other judges, and even from other states. A few lawyers in our district actually read it from time to time. Good. I’m glad to be of help.
We get between 250 and 350 views on the average Monday through Friday; occasionally something will catch readers’ attention or another blog will point out a post, and the views will spike over 500. Readers drop down to about 100 each on Saturday and Sunday. Those are not big numbers for some blogs, but considering the limited scope we work with here, and the narrow focus, I consider that pretty good. I’ll keep it up as long as it continues to be a helpful resource.
I’m looking at changing the appearance of the site to make it more visually appealing, although I favor lack of clutter and minimal frills.
I still encourage your comments. Just because I interpret something in a particular way does not end the debate. Lawyers in my district will tell you that I am open to differing opinions without taking umbrage. Don’t be afraid to take issue with my stand. You might not persuade me, but there’s no penalty for civil disagreement.
As always, if you have an offering to publish, or an idea for a post, or a suggestion, send it on via email.
Thanks for letting me be of service this past 365 days.
