Because of the many ethical readers and other occasional lurkers here (and we do thank you), TaxProf Blog's latest survey of traffic on blogs by U.S. law professors ranks The Legal Profession Blog as number 31 in discrete visitors -- and number 28 in page views -- during the most recent survey period (April 1, 2008 through March 31, 2009). That puts us up slightly from the last such report. Bill Henderson's other b-venue, Empirical Legal Studies, ranks similarly -- and I congratulate him and his colleagues there for their consistent readership (count me as one), as well.
Here, too, is the e-badge we get to post showing our status as an ABA Journal honoree for '08, as in '07. I think we can all agree that one is directed mainly at Mike Frisch, and really also to the insightful and opinionated readers' comments which follow his many bar discipline and judicial misconduct reports. (Notably helpful comments came from Patrick O'Donnell, Wick Chambers, Stephen "FixedWing," Fred Ours, Stephen Diamond, "kelly" and "joe," to name just a few.) Keep it up, y'all.
Anyway, some good LPB news on a day when many readers' hearts just sank deep into their respective stomachs just from reading Mike's latest title, Admission Denied Due To Unpaid Student Loans.
