Last week, I hosted a live webinar giving those interested a look into how the publishing team makes editorial decisions for our network of 22,000 bloggers (now 23,000). It was a joy to engage with bloggers who hoped to make their blogging more impactful, wanted to get more out of their relationship with LexBlog, or were simply interested in learning more about our legal publishing company. That webinar has led to many follow-up conversations with…
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve blogged on the LexBlog. I wanted to post some general soft-knowledge lessons I’ve picked up with my time here about life at a small company. Many of these I’ve learned from others directly, but many of them are from my observations. They are also good little quips that seem to float around the office as a sense of daily culture. Be proactive: If you see a problem, fix…
I have been watching with interest as large publishers continue to leave Medium.  The reasons given vary, but ultimately it comes down to results.  People are just not seeing the same returns on their work there.  This forces them to take a closer look at Medium’s evolving model and they don’t like it. I like the logic of their reaction.  People move to platforms to build value for their effort.  When things aren’t…

In my short time here at LexBlog, I’ve learned that spontaneity is the norm. Though this is not something that I’m used to, it’s something that I’ve been doing my best to embrace. I’m a person who likes plans (both the Death Cab album and the act of deciding things in advance). I wake up each morning with a solid plan for the day and almost always stick to that, but this summer I’ve felt…
お早う!(It’s Tuesday morning in Japan so I’m speaking to you from the future!) The LexBlog Seattle headquarters are located at the WeWork Holyoke building in downtown Seattle and as members of the WeWork community, we can “rent” a workspace at any WeWork location in the world. Pretty cool! I’ve been enamored with Japanese culture pretty much my whole life, so this year I made a check in my bucket list to take a trip out…
Authoring some of the most widely read content on LexBlog is no small feat; our network of 22,000 legal bloggers (and growing) brings in about 200 blog posts daily, adding up to almost 6000 new posts every month. That is why starting today, in an effort to recognize the incredible work of those contributing to our network, LexBlog is issuing monthly “Reader’s Choice Awards” to three LexBloggers. The criteria is simple; the bloggers who authored…
Today I joined tens of thousands of people who attempted to get a can of the re-released New Coke.  For those not familiar, New Coke was Coke’s attempt to change their formula in the eighties.  Much like today’s attempt to sell this limited release soft drink on their website, it was a flop. This effort by Coke joins dozens of high-profile limited releases that have resulted in frustration for fans as they faced a…

A study conducted by the law firm Fenwick & West LLP found that in 2018, women comprised more than one quarter of all general counsel at large public technology companies such as Apple and Intel in the Silicon Valley 150 (SV150), and in major companies in the Standard and Poor’s 100 (S&P 100). In its review of the study’s findings, Corporate Counsel, a publication of LawNow, reported that “S&P 100 companies were more likely…
