11birthdaycakeYou know you’re getting on in years when even your blog is old. Eleven years ago today, this blog started. Here was my first post.

Heck, this blog has been around so long, it’s in a hall of fame.

Thank you to all my readers over the years. I know for a fact that some of you have been with me from the start. But even if you are a brand-new reader, I appreciate it and hope you’ll come back for more.

Thanks also to all the other legal bloggers out there. I read many of you religiously and count some of you as my friends. You keep us informed, enlightened and challenged through your good work.

  • Congrats Bob. That is a real accomplishment. This one goes to 11 . . . (and presumably well beyond). 😉


  • Congratulations, Bob! What a great accomplishment. What was your first platform?

    • I started on Blogger, but that was when you could use the Blogger service but still host the blog with your own ISP. When Blogger shut down support for externally hosted blogs, I had a heck of a time. Fortunately, a company called Justia came to my rescue, as I recounted in this 2010 post: A Special Thanks to Justia for Rescuing My Blog.

  • Bob Ackley

    Happy Birthday.

    Way to go and keep up the great work!

  • Gene

    Happy birthday, blog!

  • Congratulations! I follow your blogs religiously and always appreciate the sites you refer your audience to.

    Several years ago you contacted me with questions regarding being an attorney recruiter. I was honored.

    Since then you took off, and are an inspiration.

    This past year I started my own legal executive search firm and hope to connect again.

    Thanks for all your help throughout the years.
