North Carolina Business Litigation Report

It's The First Birthday Of This Blog

I've been writing this blog for a year now. Thanks to all of you have been reading it, and thanks especially for the nice comments I've gotten from many of you.

Today is also another birthday in our house, the eighteenth birthday of my daughter Maddie.  We'll have cake for Maddie later, but not the one on the manufactured Time Magazine cover.  That picture came from PinkCakeBox's Photostream on Flickr

I created the magazine cover with WriteOnIt.

Congratulations on the first of what we all hope will be many years for your blog. You have a great talent for discovering the important and communicating with clarity. Best regards to the Birthday Girl as well.

Congrats! I really enjoy your blog, and as a law student I find it keeps me up to date on important recent cases without having to sort through every case on the court wesbite! I maintain a food & wine blog called Vino Mundo, which I hope you will check out: I basically post wine and restaurant reviews, with the occasional recipe. The restaurant reviews are primarily geared toward Raleigh, but as a Greensboro native I have tried to incorporate the few places I've been there recently, such as the Proximity Hotel and Natty Greene's. My blog turns one year old this July, so I am also sort of newbie at it. Anyways, please keep the posts coming!

Congratulations on your blog's birthday. I read your blog regularly and think it's a great resource not only for business litigators, but for those of us who write about business litigation, regardless of jurisdiction.
Also, I love the Time magazine cover!
Keep up the good work.
