The Beginning of an Era – And Why I Wrote My Own “History of the World”.
Five years ago, I wrote my first blog post in “Perspectives of a Small Town Lawyer”, www.burtonhunteresq.blogspot.com . Then I rested for a year.
With our economy in shambles, four years ago, I decided to position myself for the recovery and create an adjunct to my professional website, www.hunterlawfirm.net by writing my blogs.
I have done just fine professionally, although I learned that West Virginians are still just as likely to find you in the Yellow Pages and the Internet. You live and learn.
I started another blog, WV Lawyer, Tips and Techniques, www.burtonhunteresq2.blogspot.com .
I left Blogger a couple months ago, but those links still work. I left Findlaw at the same time, and we completely redesigned the new site, integrating my blogs on a WordPress platform.
I have posted 240 articles, over 500 pages, and most of the content remains current; perhaps a bit rambling, but the writing is sound.
I want to follow a different path than the crowd and influence others to follow me.
I am well into “retirement age”, but I intend to have a hell of a run for 10-12 more years and have fun doing it. So, with five years of “training” under my belt as an author and “wise curmudgeon”, I will try new things, use these new sites of mine for good as I see it.
My first big article of this era is my “History of the World”. It’s my effort to pull things together.
Feedback, of course, is always welcome. jbh
