Please nominate and vote for the Legal Skills Prof Blog for the ABA's Web 100

We've been at this for eight (long) years but so far haven't received the oh so coveted ABA Blawg 100 Award (which is going to be tougher to pull off this year because it's now the Web 100 (Amici) which means we're competing against all manner of law related web-based media - but that's OK, we're a tough bunch too).  The deadline for nominations is August 7.

We'd dearly appreciate it if one (or more) of our loyal readers would nominate us for the ABA's 2018 Web 100 (because you can't win unless you're nominated and we're far too modest to nominate ourselves - aside from the fact that it's against the rules).  I just checked the fine print in the social contract I signed long ago and it confirms that since we've been flogging your stuff for the past eight years (articles, announcements, job postings, etc., etc.), it's time for you to flog ours! 

The handy-dandy Law Prof Network visitor counter says we've had over 3.1 million hits since we started this endeavor.  At least one of you must care, right?  Please nominate us here.  For your convenience, the nominating info is also below:
