You have to be writer at heart to publish a blog for seven years and to update it once a day. For me, it's not a chore -- it's an activity I look forward to. The best work I've ever done has been writing and editing articles, and trading ideas with artists, writers and marketers.
Now LexisNexis has given me an opportunity to return to my original calling as a journalist and appointed yours truly to be the full-time Editor in Chief of Lawyers.comand martindale.com. I'd be kidding you if I didn't say I was totally thrilled and consider it the opportunity of a lifetime.
Since I've been on the job I have been blitzed by the intelligence and savviness of the people I get to work with. Keep up with us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and of course, on both Lawyers.com and martindale.com.
Over the last 11 years I advised more than 250 law firms on business development, personal marketing and website renewal. That mission continues here on this blog, where you'll still get practical tips on getting new business and generating new revenue. And you'll still find me at the back of the room at marketing conferences -- tapping notes on my laptop with a can of Rock Star nearby.
I've always been at home with lawyers and marketers and will carry on in the new role -- by setting editorial strategy for two prominent websites, and creating original content around current legal news for consumers and attorneys across the United States.
