American Bar Association (ABA) Journal Blawg Search, News Widget, Twitter Feed, Facebook Page and Webby People’s Voice Award

The American Bar Assocition (ABA) Journal is on the ball, which is more than can be said for Microsoft Windows Live MSN Hotmail, which erroneously put the following important and obviously non-spam email from Edward A. Adams, Editor and Publisher, American Bar Association Journal, into our spambox. We publish the email here because it points to legal features of interest to our readership which are not restricted to blawgs:

ABAJournal.com has created four new features designed for busy lawyer/bloggers like you and your readers:

Blawg Search: We’ve partnered with Justia.com, the leading legal information portal, to create a search engine covering all of the 1,800-plus blogs in our directory — including yours. It’s like Google for lawyers, pinpointing in an instant the most sophisticated and up-to-date commentary by legal professionals on any topic. Use the search box at the top of any of our pages (including our homepage: www.abajournal.com), and on the search results page click on the “Blawg Results” tab. Plus you can subscribe to an RSS feed of any search to follow the results in your feed reader.

News Widget: Now you can add continuously updated ABA Journal headlines to your blog or to personalized pages like iGoogle or Netvibes with our news widget. We’re posting 25 to 50 fresh stories every business day, so you’re sure to deliver the latest breaking legal news to your readers. Visit our widget page to grab the free code: www.abajournal.com/widgets

Twitter Feed: Are you using Twitter, the most popular microblogging platform? Then you can integrate our headlines into your personal Twitter page. Dozens of lawyers already have. Visit our page and click “Follow”: www.twitter.com/abajournal

Facebook Page: If you’re a member of Facebook, one of the most popular social networking sites, you can become a fan of the ABA Journal. Our Facebook page features our latest headlines, recent covers, and special announcements. Visit our page and click “Become a Fan”: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ABA-Journal/13563247155

And to celebrate winning the Webby People’s Voice Award in the Law category, we’re letting our readers pick which of three acceptance speeches we’ll give at the June 10 ceremony. Each is just five words long — the maximum length the Webby Awards will allow. To cast your vote, visit: http://www.abajournal.com/news/webbyspeechvote/

We hope you find that these features, and more that will be coming in the months ahead, make ABAJournal.com even more useful and informative. We love getting feedback from our readers. If you have suggestions, drop us a line: www.abajournal.com/contact
