Whether you’re a blogger or blog reader, the month of December has become the time to shine a light on your favourite Canadian law blogs and bloggers. And if you’re new to the Clawbies tradition, please make careful note of ‘the humble Canadian rule’ — don’t toot your own horn! Your blog gets automatically nominated when you nominate and link to other bloggers! Yes, it’s a wink-wink, nudge-nudge concept, but take a look around at the nomination posts from prior years for examples. Or search for ‘Clawbies 2010‘ or ‘Clawbies 2009‘; you’ll get a clearer picture — our goal is to have fun with it!
Once again, I am honoured to have colleague Jordan Furlong on the Clawbies judging panel. I am also extremely pleased to announce that Slaw’s Simon Fodden has also agreed to lend a helping hand in deciding the (virtual) hardware.
So please consider taking part: explore lawblogs.ca; see the Clawbies winners from prior years; and read the great legal content from bloggers who work and write about the law in Canada. Write a blog post with your nominations (or tweet with the #clawbies2011 hashtag) by December 28th, and we’ll announce the winners on New Year’s Eve!
