Over a period of time, blogs have picked up real pace in the online community. Statistics indicate that information is far likely easier to be found on blogs than any on any organizational or private website. That is the prime reason why a number of search results being returned by major search engines have proportionately a high number of blogs included in them.

The legal community is no different. As a matter of fact the number of blogs in the professional domains has seen a rise much greater than any other field. Posting to blogs allows you to establish repo online. It introduces you to your potential clients and provides the first impression.

Here are 10 reasons why lawyers should blog.

1. To Express Legal Thoughts and Opinions

You have something to say, professional or personal opinion, blogs provide you a place to say it and be heard.

2. To Market or Promote Your Legal Practice or Law Firm

Blogging is a great way to help market or promote yourself,  your firm, legal practice or the services that you offer.

3. To Help People Understand the Law

Many blogs are written to help people who may be going through situations that you may already have tackled. someone out there may be looking for help, an advice that only few can provide; and you may be one of those few. As a blogger you have experienced. Many parenting, divorce, child support and health-related blogs are written for this purpose.

4. To Establish Yourself as an Expert in Legal Matters

Blogs are wonderful tools to help you or your law firm to establish itself as experts in a field or topic. For example, if you're trying to get a job in a specific field or hoping to publish a book on a specific topic, blogging can help legitimize your expertise and expand your online presence and platform.

5. To Connect Like Minded People Within the Legal Community

Blogging brings like-minded people together. Starting a blog can help you find those people and share your opinions and thoughts.

6. To Make a Difference

When you are writing a blog, you are contributing to the society. Many blogs are issue-based meaning that the blogger is trying to provide information to change public opinion and thinking about a particular issue. Many political blogs and social issue blogs are written to make a difference in the way people think about an issue.

7. To Stay Active or Knowledgeable in the Legal Field or Topic

Since successful blogging is partially dependent on posting frequency and providing updated, fresh information, it's a perfect way to help a blogger stay abreast of the events in a specific field or topic.

8. To Stay Connected with Pears and Friends Within the Legal Community

The world has shrunk since the Internet has become more accessible. Blogs provide a simple way for pears, family and friends to stay connected from different parts of the world by sharing professional articles, stories, photos, videos and more.

9. To Generate Revenue

There exists a potential to generate revenue from your blog with hard work, consistency and commitment. There are many bloggers who bring in big bucks. With patience and practice, you can make money through advertising and other income-generating activities on your blog.

10. To Have Fun and Be Creative

Many people start a blog simply for fun.  One of the most important aspects to be a successful blogger is having a passion about your blog's topic. Some of the best and most interesting blogs started out as blogs that were written just for fun and to give the blogger a creative outlet.

Very seldom people find time to write books or articles containing scores of papers. Blogging is in, text books are running out.
