Law Writer blog premieres

September 5, 2009

While cover on this North Carolina legislative news and research tips, Phyllis Pickett of our North Carolina drafting staff has started a new blog entitled “Law Writer: Legislative Drafting and Analysis in the Real World” covering the more technical aspects of law writing. Drop by, won’t you? Looks like it will give a good treatment to the science of law writing, while I continue to cover the arts.

Phyllis even has a twitter feed on drafting linked to her blog.  I have trouble figuring out twitter.  Seems to be like CB radio on a keyboard. Breaker, breaker.

Her great quote from her Twitter feed today appropos of drafting: “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. – Mark Twain’

What is blognetnews and why am I #8?

September 20, 2007

Some outfit called blognetnews.com has published a list of North Carolina’s 20 Most Influential Political Blogs.

I’m ranked as #8. I have absolutely no idea why. This blog is light stories, data, research tools and historical stuff. I assume that their metrics have to do with hits and incoming and outgoing links. Those would be imputed influence. I’m not sure who I am influencing with stories about pens and people who have had the same job for 50 years.
