Too Busy?: One of the most popular types of books we have in my law library is the sort we all know as, “1,001 ways to save time” or the equivalent. Logic has it, and who am I to disagree, that if you pick up even ONE new trick, you’re ahead of the game. (We even have a couple of these books that give Oregon attorneys MCLE credit – doesn’t get much better than that, does it.)
So my tip of the day is, if you are too busy to track all your favorite blogs, and even if your RSS is getting out of hand, give yourself a mini-vacation and try reading just your top 3-4 blogs, the ones that summarize the best of the best or have the best new tips themselves. For me, they are Stark County Law Library, Jim Calloway, My Shingle, and Robert Ambrogi. You get to pick your own. (Crazy librarian that I am, I have my Daily and my Daily Quick Blog lists, Weekly and Monthly ones, and more. Sad, isn’t it.) Sure you’ll miss a some good stuff from the other bloggers, but this team covers an awful lot of ground, especially for solo and small law firm practitioners, the group I most aim to please.
