A Community of Legal Bloggers. All That Once Was Good and That Could Be Again

The concept of a legal blogging community is inspiring to me. Always has been. Back in the day, when law bloggers were bloggers, we got to know each other.  Virtual as it was, we had a bit of a community going.  We followed each other’s blogs, often with a news aggregator, commented on other’s blogs and “commented back” from our blog by saying our thing in response to what the other blogger wrote.  Blogging was how got to know each other.
