Mark Herrmann, Jones Day partner and author of the terrific The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law, sounds out on what he’s learned in a year of blogging.


His take on the benefits of serious blawging is mildly interesting, but what caught our eye was his sideswipe at presumably lazier bloggers like AbovetheLaw’s David Lat (and us):


First, blogging—or, at a minimum, blogging about substantive legal issues—is hard. Perhaps it's easy to host a blog that simply pokes fun at current events by commenting on, and linking to, the news of the day. I wouldn't know; I've never done that.




As folks who have done a bit of that, we can assure readers that fun-poking is not always as easy as it looks. Besides, even the curmudgeonly Hermann would likely concede that not all blogs can—or should—be as deeply serious as one that addresses “various topics that arise in the defense of pharmaceutical and medical device product liability litigation.”


I mean, where else can lawyers read and share their views about Denim Day?
