By now, almost everyone has heard about Twitter. Twitter is the micro-blogging social network that allows you to publish and read short messages of less than 140 characters (“tweets”). Twitter has over 10 million users and with all the recent media attention it seems like everyone is on twitter; celebrities, news agencies, municipalities, and corporations.

I recently came across two entertaining and informative blogs about practice management for lawyers and law firms.
David Bilinsky is a practice management advisor and staff lawyer with the Law Society of British Columbia. He writes and lectures on the subject of legal practice management and his blog, http://thoughtfullaw.com covers topics such as record management, technology, and law firm strategies.
This month, he wrote a series a blogs on the security of electronic documents that many lawyers will be interested in reading.
Allison Wolf’s insightful blog, www.thelawyercoach.com, discusses business development and legal marketing ideas for lawyers. Wolf, the founder of her own company that coaches lawyers on business development, offers her advice and links to the most recent articles on this subject.
Both blogs also comment frequently on personal development of lawyers and what lawyers can do to renew themselves and their legal practices.
