I’m starting a new blog called iplaw.io (just bought the domain so there is nothing there yet). Someday I hope to use my 6 figure education but it will be hard as most law firms/legal organizations want experience which I don’t have and don’t have a way to get. I’m hoping that instead of experience I can gain knowledge which I will demonstrate through the new blog. Hopefully with enough legal knowledge I can find someone who is willing to take a chance on me.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 3,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 6 years to get that many views.
I’m pretty bored so I started working on a plugin to catalog my small (but hopefully growing) vinyl collection.
I strongly believe that there is a huge need in the legal field for a way to set up easy, affordable sites for firms and solos. Most people who I tell this to don’t really believe me so I’m going to put my money where my mouth is. Over the next few months I’m going to be working on wptreatise.com (corny name I know, but people remember corny ). My goal is to make a guide that will take people who have zero experience with WordPress and show them how to make a top notch site for their practice using WordPress.com. It is not only going to contain the actual how to but also best practices and I’m also putting together a demo that uses all the tips I’m going to include in the guide. I’ll be posting the outline here next week as I found that the more I advertise things the less like I am to get discouraged and give up. I don’t want to look bad in front of my two blog readers.
It surprises me how many solos and small firms don’t have websites. Nowadays it is so easy (especially with WordPress) that I can’t understand it. I’ve decided to make it my mission to make sure every lawyer in South Dakota (and then the world) has a website (running WordPress of course) so I decided to whip up a quick demo site on WordPress.com, which is what I am going to recommend using as it is so much easier than self-hosting and most people just want a simple site and don’t need all the frills (and headaches) that come with self-hosting. So I created the fictional firm of Dodson & Fogg to show people how cheap & easy it is to make a site with WordPress.com. I still need to add in some more filler content but it should be done soon.
*Does anyone know which book the firm of Dodson & Fogg appears (without Googling it)
This is kinda cool, it will be interesting to check out once the plugin is done.
This is probably my OCD talking but it bugs me how the widgets aren’t all lined up in nice neat rows, you think there would be some way to fix this.

I was curious when widgets were added to WordPress so I did a quick Google search and I stumbled across this codex page. Its really cool to see how far WordPress has come.
