Former Blawger Named to Top 100 Business List

Fast Company has published its list of the 100 most creative people in business. One of those 100 people is Lisa Stone, who gave up writing a legal blog to found and run BlogHer, thereby earning her place on this list.

BlogHer is a publishing and events network for women in social media. Stone is a long-time journalist who was the founding author of Legal Blog Watch on Law.com. When she left LBW to start BlogHer (together with co-founders Elisa Camahort and Jory Des Jardins), so big were the shoes she left behind that it took two bloggers to replace her. I was fortunate to be one of them, along with Carolyn Elefant. (Meanwhile, Bruce Carton and Eric Lipman have now taken over posting duties at LBW.)

So, congratulations Lisa!

  • It’s interesting that you bring up BlogHer. It is an untapped resource for lawyers in practice areas like family law, consumer law — even small business and tax law.

    While at Dell I had the opportunity to explore marketing opportunities through Blogher, working mostly with Jory. It is a goldmine of insight into networking and community engagement with/through mommy bloggers.

  • That is such great news about Lisa. I credit Lisa with the rise of MyShingle – she plucked it from obscurity to join the law.com network, which eventually lead to the Legal Blogwatch gig. I had the privilege of speaking at the very first Blogher conference and even at that first one, it was clear that she was on to something special.
