I'm pleased to announce that HealthBlawg has been named to the ABA Journal Blawg 100. I appreciate the recognition, and the nominations from you, dear readers, that put this blawg on the list. I do not envy the editors who had to make the tough decisions — there are many more than 100 deserving blawgs out there.
Since I began blogging over three years ago, I have been fortunate enough to get to know many bloggers — including some of the other honorees — both IRL (in real life) and virtually (via blogging and, more recently, via Twitter). It has been an incredibly enriching experience; thank you, all.
The next phase of the Blawg 100 involves the general public, not just the ABA Journal's editorial staff. Public voting will determine the ranking of blawgs within several editorial categories; HealthBlawg is in the "Practice Specific" category.
I would greatly appreciate your vote, not just in recognition of this blawg, but in recognition of health care law and policy as a significant practice area — one that has not been represented in the ABA Journal Blawg 100 to date. Please take a few moments to register on the ABA Journal website, and then vote for HealthBlawg. Voting is open through the end of December. Even though the ABA Journal is based in Chicago, I will refrain from exhorting you to vote early and often.
