I am very happy to say that it is that time of the year again. Julie Fleming-Brown and I are announcing the second annual "Lawyers Appreciate . . . " countdown. How do you participate and appreciate? From my announcement last year:
Julie Fleming Brown of Life at the Bar and I had an idea last month for a way to close out the year with a flurry of appreciation in the legal blogosphere. We hope many of you will join us. Here's how it works. We each will start out by sending an e-mail to three bloggers asking them to write a post to their blog beginning with these words: "Lawyers Appreciate . . ." That's the only rule; start a post with those words. And the second half of participation is to pass the LA (Lawyer's Appreciate . . .) baton on to three more bloggers. The countdown will last for 10 days, until the last day of the year.
And from Julie's announcement this year:
Last December, Stephanie West Allen (of Idealawg and Brains on Purpose(tm)) and I launched a 10-day campaign that we called “Lawyers Appreciate…” We asked legal bloggers to make a post, sharing the things and people they most appreciate in the practice of law. And we were delighted with the results, which you can find summarized here. We discovered that lawyers appreciate clients, staff and colleagues, fair jurists, family, and so much more.
So many wonderful posts in 2006 all over the legal blogosphere. For those of you who posted your "LA . . ." list last year, what additions (and maybe subtractions) will you make in 2007? And to those new to the "Lawyers Appreciate . . ." countdown, we look forward to reading your posts of appreciation.
Technically the 10 days start tomorrow but I just may start the appreciation baton early.
