Frequently Asked Questions About the Blawg 100


What’s the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame?

In 2012, we introduced our inaugural Blawg 100 Hall of Fame class. These are Blawg 100 honorees who we’ve decided will always be among our favorites and so deserve their own listing, which we hope to add to each year. Here is the list as of December 2015.

How does the ABA Journal select law blogs to include in the annual Blawg 100?

The Blawg 100 is compiled by ABA Journal staff and is largely a favorites list. We also ask for nominations from our readers through the Blawg Amici process. Most are blawgs that are regularly updated, contain original content, opinion and/or analysis. Many are also on our radar because the Journal staff finds the posts useful in terms of tipping us off to news or generating posts we consider worthy of coverage.

Can I nominate a blawg for the Blawg 100?

Sort of. This isn’t a formal contest with entries and entry fees. But in 2009, we instituted a Blawg Amici aspect to the selection process. These friend-of-the-blawg briefs should be short testimonials from fans of the particular blogs.

Also, no blawgs are considered unless they are in the ABA Journal’s Blawg Directory. To submit a blawg for directory consideration, go here.

My blawg was selected for the Blawg 100, do you have a badge or promotion tools?

Yes. Follow this link to find Blawg 100 badges in various sizes and a sample press release.

Why isn’t there voting this year?

We decided to end the voting aspect of the Blawg 100 in 2015. Each blog selected is worthy of distinction.
