As some may know, LexBlog is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, but we have a number of intrepid team members who work remotely (thanks to Scott’s recent move, though, we’re all at least in the contiguous United States now). Twice a year we sound the LexBeacon (picture a conch shell, with the LexBlog “L” ornately carved into it), and gather everyone at LexBlog HQ for a week of in-person meetings, conversations, and, yes, a little bit…
I joined LexBlog in January with the goal of helping it launch a global news and commentary network based on content from legal blogs. In furtherance of that goal, we announced in April that we are opening participation in the network to all legal blogs, without cost and without regard to whether the blog is a LexBlog customer. Since then, I’ve been wrestling with a thorny question: Are there legal blogs that we should exclude…
In another era, I would be an Excel jockey; instead, my true love is Google Sheets. As Scott Fennell and I have continued to hammer away at working on the new LexBlog.com, my eyes have gone red staring at more spreadsheets in Google Sheets than I’d care to admit. I’m using these spreadsheets for two reasons: Validate that the shape of the data on our test aggregation site (i.e., the future LexBlog.com) matches the…
Happy national donuts day! On a day dedicated to donuts, it seems fitting to write my first post in a blog about donuts. To stick with the donut theme, I’ll be dedicating this post to a favorite GIF emoji on the LexBlog team: Donut Parrot. When we have a moment to take a break from our ticket queues, many of us at LexBlog like to virtually congregate in our team chat feeds to share…
Just like donuts there are many preferred methods of customer service, as to what is most effective, company standards, the outlook and end result. What one persons view of successful customer service may be a complete fail to another’s, like a jelly donut. “Who in their right mind enjoys jelly donuts?” Everybody in their lifetime has held a position that involves customer service, wither you were working retail focusing on a customer by customer basis…
Our Head of Product, Jared Suldzdorf often says working at LexBlog.com requires wearing many hats. He’s not wrong, as a typical day may consist of dabbling in Business Development, Customer Support, and Design. I spent part of my breaks in college doing administrative work for LexBlog.com, and I’m now just approaching my two year mark of working full time since graduating from college. The first year, I spent working as Business Development Coordinator, which…
Growing up I have always wanted to go to Europe and visit some of their amazing attractions. Luckily for me LexBlog has an open PTO policy and my dreams are finally coming true! This fall my girlfriend Molly and I will embark on our Euro trip. Our plan is to fly into London since we found a non stop one way flight from Seattle for less than $400 which seemed like a very reasonable price…
This is the format of an ideal blog post. The most important part of writing an ideal blog post is to, you know, actually write it. Your thoughts are brilliant, I’m sure, but when you keep them within your head you miss out on the discussions that your ideas could generate, that could subsequently help shape your own thoughts further. The topic can be anything – if you look at our Top 10 in Law…
Donuts are such a big deal at LexBlog that we name our products after them. Apple Fritter is not just a sweet sticky treat to us. Heck this post is on donuts.lexblog An interesting article regarding remote workers found its way into my Facebook feed yesterday about how remote workers outperform office workers. The argument was made that remote workers were more productive than office workers. Remote workers also make better teammates and have…
