Thank you to everyone who views this blog. I just learned that I have had 17,000+ page views. Not exactly Grisham, but I appreciate every view.
I promise not to do this very often, but I posted the article below on my new blog “WV Lawyer – Tips and Techniques” I write this one for other lawyers and judges, but if you want to confirm how smart and witty I am (he says humbly), you may read it too. I am pleased that I am rather smart (humble too) because every day has a moment, or ten, where I feel pretty dumb.
The feedback I got this week made me feel really good. Here it is:
Yes; some day I am going to get some feedback that singes the hair off my head, but today I am feeling “all warm and fuzzy”. It was a “challenging week” that ended on a very good note, saving me LOTS of risk, anguish, and “up front money”. It was also stressful, but during that week, these three e-mails arrived and lifted my spirit.
Someone must have renewed the discussion started by a young lawyer in one of my discussion groups, probably the ABA Small Firm group on Linked In. I deeply appreciated their taking the time to read my writings and send me words of encouragement. Each could become a penpal, and will if they choose to.I always answer, even if you got stuck in my spam filter for awhile.
Writing is pure pleasure to me because I write about what I know and do NOT pause for research, citations, or anything that does not interest me. I save that for my “day job”. j.b.h.

One difference- with technology I started with Macs (Mac Plus /SE) went to PC’s because they are ‘cheaper’, discovered they are not as they require additional technician fees to keep them working, and when technologies converged sufficiently for Mac’s to talk easily with PC’s migrated back to Macs.
Your book should be mandatory reading for anyone starting out in the profession.
