It’s July, and that means the American Bar Association (“ABA”) has initiated the annual process for selecting the top legal blogs (or “blawgs”) in the blogosphere. The 8th iteration of the list will be revelaed later this year when the ABA announces the “Blawg 100” in the print and electronic versions of the ABA Journal. The ABA’s initiation of the selection process also means that we at the FDA Law Blog once again need to go to the well and ask our loyal readers to nominate us for the Blawg 100. With your help, we’ve made the top 100 list three times before. We would like nothing more than to make the 2014 list so that we can add another badge to the “Awards and Honors” collection posted on our blog webpage. So here’s our best Arnold Horshack “Ohh, Ohh, Ohh . . . Choose me” plea for nominations.
To nominate the FDA Law Blog for the 2014 Blawg 100, readers should use the Amici Form – available here – supplied by the ABA and submit a friend-of-the-blawg brief. Although it’s called a brief, it’s not legal in nature. In fact, you only have 500 characters to say why you’re a fan of the blog. Remember, when you complete the nomination form, our URL is www.fdalawblog.net. Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than than 5 PM ET on Friday, August 8, 2014. (That’s the same day one of your Blogmeisters is scheduled to be at Uhuru Peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro; so while he’s literally on top of the world – or at least the roof of Africa – you can figuratively keep the Blogmeisters flying high and on top of the world by timely submitting your nomination.) ABA editors make the final decisions about what blogs to include in the Blawg 100. We hope they’ll be impressed with what our readers have to say about us. Thank you!
