In her article "On the Web - Online Marketing: Blawgs Part 1," Patricia Jordon discusses law blogs, and some of the most popular types of blogging software. She introduces the topic of law blogs as follows:
A blawg is a blog that focuses on commentary about the law. A blawg can get you noticed, drive traffic to your website and improve your search engine ranking. Savvy law firms use blog technology to promote services to potential clients, and post information in real time from anywhere in the world. You do not need to be a techie or spend vast sums of cash to build a great looking blawg. Blog publishing software is easy to use, free or relatively inexpensive.
