I was doing some stuff around the site earlier this week when I stumbled upon my LI blogging stats –stats that revealed I was dangerously close to the 1,000 blog post marker. 1,000 blog posts. I know I’ve blogged a fair amount in the last (almost) two years I’ve been working at...
I’ve changed my profile pic.
For the first time since Legal Insurrection was founded on October 12, 2008.
It’s part of a new attitude. Hopefully it will last.
In other news, I’m *almost* out of the woods on family health issues which have stressed the hell out of me the past few months...
My husband Jeff and I are thrilled to announce that our family will have a new addition this fall.
Sometime around October 4th our family will have another baby girl. Just in time for the election!
Just a quick explanation.
You may have noticed that for the past three months, but particularly the past few weeks, I have not been as active on the website as before. There are many issues I wish I could have covered, or covered in more depth, but haven’t been able to. I’ve...
In My Mind:
Amid the last few days’ legitimate furor over Twitter apparently censoring conservative opinions, some conservatives have vowed to quit the medium in protest. That is a mistake.
On Saturday morning we posted a brief compilation of recent events suggesting Twitter might be targeting conservatives, Is Twitter Silencing Conservatives?
The impetus Saturday was the suspension of Robert Stacy McCain’s account (@rsmccain). McCain blogs at TheOtherMcCain.com and last February published a book, Sex Trouble: Essays on Radical Feminism and the War Against...
Did you know that we had a Tip Line?
The Tip Line was originally intended to be a, um, tip line where we could receive, um, tips on news and other stories. It has been with us pretty much since we moved to self-hosting in June 2011.
There was a link in the...
Last night, for reasons unrelated to this post, I was looking back at the posts from when former Cornell undergrad Kathleen McCaffrey joined (November 2010) and then departed (May 2012) Legal Insurrection.
What I immediately noticed is how many of the commenters back then still are commenters now. That sense of continuity and community is...
I was at a wedding in Arizona tonight when longtime Legal Insurrection reader Carol from Kansas came up to me to introduce herself.
She reads Legal Insurrection every day, and has helped spread the link!
Total coincidence that we were at the same wedding and I’m glad she put two and two...
When Professor Jacobson suggested I put together a “Top 5” post, I thought it would be easy peasy. I was wrong.
2015 was a wild year and I wrote a lot of things. Picking a few favorites our of 40-some-odd pages of posts though? That was no easy task. And what posts...
Barring big breaking news, which unfortunately is a possibility tonight, this will be my and our last post of 2015.
This is the time each year I get a little weepy-eyed and reflective.
When I look back on the past year, there were some tough times. I think of Mandy often, and wish...
2015 was a decent year in terms of blog traffic. We were up over 1 million page views compared to 2014, to over 15 million for the year.
Based on Google Analytics, here were the ten post with the most page views during 2015:
1. Finally Obtained: David Gregory Arrest Warrant Affidavit, January...
This small poetic effort of mine has become somewhat of a holiday tradition. Merry Christmas Eve to you all!
‘TWAS THE BLOGGER’S NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the
Bloggers were glad to see Christmas draw near.
Their laptops were turned off and all put away
The bloggers were...
Many of our readers will be shopping online starting on Black Friday (today) and Cyber Monday, through the end of the year.
It’s with a mix of sadness for us (because she’s leaving) and happiness for her (because she found a great law job) that I report Amy Miller is leaving Legal Insurrection at the end of the month. I’ll have more to say about that when we throw her going away party, which...
I can’t believe I missed Legal Insurrection’s 7th anniversary on October 12, 2015.
I even had the date on my calendar, but I’ve been so distracted lately I didn’t pay attention.
