2012 Clawbies – Canadian Law Blog Awards

Kudos to all nominees, finalists and winners in the 2012 Clawbies – Canadian Law Blog Awards.

I am gratified that the Clawbies jury panel — comprised of Steve Matthews, Jordan Furlong and Simon Fodden (for whom the eponymous Fodden Award for Best Canadian Law Blog is named — decided to recognize some blawgers who represent the tradition of tireless and fearless blawging; not flawging and shameless self-promotion.

The ClawBies provide an object lesson for new blawgers (and for those who have forgotten or still don’t understand the point):  substance always trumps form.  Whether you blawg for fun or profit, remember to always share link-love and promote others, especially those with whom you disagree; this is the key to building a lasting online reputation among your peers and the public. How you define success ultimately depends upon you, but failure often reeks of desperation and cheap cologne.

The Canadian blawgosphere appears alive and well and let’s hope it continues into 2013 and beyond.

    Do you realize how hurtful this post is for those of us who were ignored or rejected by the ClawBies as unworthy?

    Yes, indeed I am. Your consolation prize is an ABA Blawg 100 Hall of Fame retirement party and a parting gift of a lovely set of steak knives.

    They were really nice steak knives. I mean really nice.
