Pink Tape has begun it’s march for world domination. Not content with the shared epithet “Bristol Blogging Powerhouse” (@davidallengreen may have been joking, me and @ZASaunders are deadly serious!), self esteem not quite replete following an approving pat on the back from the estimable Charon QC, I’ve secured a foothold over the pond with an entry in the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100. As far as I can tell I’m the only Brit on the list, and I assume that I have not been given a spot on account of being married to a Septic*.
Anyhoo, although it’s a mite odd to think that lawyers and non-lawyers in another, very different, jurisdiction might be reading Pink Tape (no doubt with either bored or bemused expressions – it must make absolutely NO SENSE to them!), but thanks y’all! (am resisting the urge to use lots of stereotypical Americanisms here…That was my one indulgence.)
So, it falls to me to urge you to vote for your compatriot my British brothers and sisters. Ask not what your Blawger can do for you…
But for those of you who don’t want to waste your vote on a rank outsider (well, it IS the American Bar Association Journal), my recommendation for a more tactically astute vote is Popehat. That makes about as much sense to me as my “Mary Poppins gone ranty” must make to all those Ally McBeals and Perry Masons over there, but I still love it. ‘Cos it’s got attitude innit.
*term of endearment – don’t get narky now!
