Well, as our readers know, we are modest people here at Socially Aware, and we don’t like tooting our own horn, but we do feel compelled to note that Socially Aware has been named one of the 50 best law blogs by the ABA Journal, the American Bar Association’s flagship publication!

To determine which blogs represent the best of law-related online media, the ABA Journal’s staff considered nominations by readers who wrote the publication “to share what they considered the most compelling corners of the web.” In a change from years past, judges from outside the publication also nominated blogs for consideration and helped to make the final determinations. You can find the names of those esteemed judges at the bottom of the page at this link.

The ABA Journal has annually compiled a year-end list of exemplary legal web content—which until this year was called the Annual Blawg 100—since 2007. Socially Aware was delighted to be included on that list in 2015 and 2016.

This year, to make room among the honorees for 25 law podcasts and 25 law-related Twitter accounts, the ABA Journal renamed the list the Web 100 and whittled down the number of blogs it recognized to 50. We’re thrilled to have made the cut, and to be included on a list of so many excellent blogs.

We remain as passionate about social media and technology law as the day we launched Socially Aware. And we’re thankful for the Socially Aware community—all the readers, contributors and colleagues who have been so important to the blog’s success.

We look forward in the coming year to continuing to share our thoughts and insights—and to hearing your thoughts and insights—on legal developments, business trends and emerging best practices relating to social media, mobile apps and other emerging technologies!
