I've left The Firm and begun my one-year stint as a government employee, and as such I'm feeling a little more antsy about (1) blogging about work and (2) posting my own uninformed legal commentary. So I'm going to be doing less of these things from now on, at least for the next year. I'm not sure how much of either of those things I've been doing on a regular basis, but whatever it is it'll be less so for a while.
I won't have any compunction about blogging about law firms, the legal profession in general, legal developments that don't bear directly on the types of things that I'll be working on as a law clerk, law school, or the types of trade-rag gossip that shows up on Law.com. So in that regard I should be able to maintain some legitimacy as a "blawg." As for legal commentary, I've started another, completely anonymous blog (which I'm not going to link to here for obvious reasons), which will be the sounding board for my wacky perspectives on court decisions and what-not. I'll quietly add a link to my sidebar shortly. If you want me to email the link to you, let me know.
Finally, I've made some feeble attempts to anonymize this very blog as well (for example, I no longer use my last name to sign my posts or comments). So, if you're one of those people who likes to refer to me by my last name in comments, please choose another nickname for the time being. "H-Bomb" is still preferred.
I think that's it. Happy Monday.
