The American Bar Association is circulating a survey soliciting the views of law bloggers on numerous topics, including a pair on questions on the credibility of law blogs.
What makes a blog credible to you? Select all that apply.
- Years of experience
- Substantive area of law or practice covered
- Tone of the blog
- Frequency of posts
- Other …
How credible do you find blogs within a law firm’s website?
- More credible than an unaffiliated legal blog
- Less credible than an unaffiliated legal blog
- As credible as an unaffiliated legal blog
The various indicia of credibility suggested by these questions intrigued me, because they’re not factors I would have guessed would influence the credibility of a law blog. I’ll be very interested to see how experienced law bloggers answer these questions when the survey results are released, likely in December when the ABA Blawg 100 List is announced.
