TaxProf Blog Named Best Law Professor Blog of 2009

Dennis Kennedy has published his 6th annual law-related blogging awards (the Blawggies) in 12 categories.  I am proud that TaxProf Blog was named the Best Law Professor Blog:

Best Law Professor Blog – Paul Caron's The TaxProf Blog

The Blawggies have always had a spot for the best law professor blawg. In part, it’s my little effort to bring closer (unsuccessfully, as of yet) the great divide between practicing lawyers and law professors (although realizing that a favorable mention of a law professor's blog outside academia might be disastrous for his or her tenure chances, I try to be careful). When I find an interesting post in Google Reader, I star it. I’m not sure any law-related blog has gotten more starred posts than Paul Caron's The TaxProf Blog, although my early background in tax law has something to do with that. Paul covers not just tax issues, but the economic turmoil, law school topics and more.

Runner-up - Tie: Jim Maule's Mauled Again is another great tax law blog with a broader scope and very interesting posts. Eric Goldman's Technology & Marketing Law Blog has great coverage of cyberlaw and intellectual property law issues.

Congratulations, very well deserved. As a practicing tax lawyer, I find your site useful and informative.

My only criticism of the blog would be that there is too much law school/gossip type stuff...but I can just as easily choose not to read those posts and look to the posts that I find useful, so I guess it's a wash.

It is possible to subscribe to only tax-related posts (or, for that matter, only legal education posts):

Congratulations! And, you did it without ACORN voters! You deserve the honor, especially after my comments must have pulled you down.

I agree with B . . . if ratings are the goal it is quite entertaining . . . but its substantive tax content is declining. Perhaps there is room for a "taxscholarshipblog" that corrects the imbalance?
