Legal Writing Prof Blog wins most improved player award

I received a nice email from Law Professor Blog Network overlord Professor Paul Caron telling me that this blog had seen the greatest percentage increase in traffic over the past 12 months of any of the top 35 blogs edited by a law prof with a publicly available SiteMeter.  (Granted, that's a lot of qualifiers but we'll still take it).

From today's TaxProf Blog

Here are the largest percentage increases (page views and traffic) among the Top 35 blogs from the prior 12-month period:
