    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for picking up the ball on Blawg Review and running with it. It was a really fun tradition, and I met many other bloggers that way.

    And what a fascinating run through Web history here!

    Even though Small Business Trends is not a law blog per se (my having left the practice of law years ago), we enjoy the intellectual plane that most lawyers operate on, and appreciated being honorary members of the “blawg” realm.

    – Anita

    Great concept for the chain, Mark.

    BTW, I haven’t slowed down so much as adapted to microblogging. What were once justifiable short posts that did little more than point to someone else’s posts are now tweeted or otherwise “shared” with a brief comment. In fact I still post at least once a week and usually quite a bit more than that, which at my age isn’t called slow at all.

    And absolutely positively serving reruns! They often taste better the second time around. When they don’t, Blog Post Promoter is a handy-dandy way to remind me it’s time to clean out the fridge.

    Number one thing I find, by the way, when I re-encounter those old posts based on other people’s posts? Dead links, of course. Well, I guess hosting isn’t free.

    Do you intend for your blog to live forever?

    Mark,
    I didn’t even know. This is a perfect tribute.

    […] seriously missed out, and you should fix that by reading it. Blawg Review #325.3 provides a mind-blowing summary of which Blawg Reviews were written by whom, and where, if at all, both those writers and their […]

    Thank you for the preservation. This obviously required a serious time commitment. It’s amazing how many excellent blogs such as Divorce Discourse never had the chance to participate because they launched after Blawg Review’s heyday. A correction about TechnoLawyer. Our business model hasn’t changed since our birth.

    Ed attended a party we hosted in 2009. I’m glad I got a chance to meet him. Long before I met him, I told a few peers that I didn’t approve of his anonymity because he wasn’t a whistleblower or publishing anything controversial. But Monica Bay told me to lighten up. I took her advice and signed up.

    Ed accomplished the impossible — herding cats (without paying them). Rest in peace.

    Lex Ferenda should allow comments – it might be an anti-spam setting, it certainly wasn’t an intentional block!

    I for one appreciate all the work you put into this. Amazing. Comprehensive and necessarily long–but with quality throughout and not one wasted word. And respectfully rendered. Thanks, Mark.
