Blogging, in general, is a way for you to send a message to the world, the reason which, is up to the blogger. Blogging for lawyers can potentially be a very worthwhile time investment. “But how?” you may ask.
Blogging is seen as an action, where an individual has taken time out of their day, to write a personal message to all of the readers, be it their thoughts on that day or about an event that has happened, it gives an insight in one’s life. Lawyers, can use this to give an insight on, what kind of a person they are, to the client, before even talking to the client. A lawyer’s blog can give a potential client the reason he needs, to choose that specific lawyer, instead of someone else.
For example, a blog, that is on the lawyer’s main page, where he sells his services, can be as an insight in his work experience and work ethic. If the lawyer writes about his day to day experiences with a project (within legal boundaries) and what struggles he has had to overcome, a client might look at him better than at a website, where the only information he sees, is the name, family name and email address or phone number. The blog serves as a portfolio for new clients.
Of course, it is not recommended to write everything that has happened in the day for lawyers. If the day has been very stressful and all that can come out of it, is a rant post, then it is better to just not write that post. Blogging as a lawyer can be a double-edged sword, because you must think about what you write. It can work as a great tool to get new clients to choose your services or backfire horrifically, because of unedited, emotionally driven posts. And, of course, you must keep in mind, that there are certain things that cannot be published on the blog, as the majority of posts would be about your work experience with the client, so, any sensitive information is an absolute no-no, but if you overcome all these obstacles, the fruits of your labor will be immense!
