After nine years of operation, I am proud to unveil the new TaxProf Blog, the first step in a re-design of the Law Professor Blogs Network of forty legal blogs edited by leading scholars and educators who are committed to providing the web destination for law professors, practitioners, government and nonprofit lawyers, legal information professionals, and students in their respective fields. The re-design is intended to provide the premier legal blogging platform to our editors by (1) optimizing each blog for viewing across a variety of platforms (desktop, laptop, tablet, and smart phone); (2) empowering editors with additional tools in managing their blogs, including fuller integration of social media; (3) providing more robust analytics with richer and more accurate readership data; and (4) strengthening our partnership with Wolters Kluwer Law & Business/Aspen Publishers and providing additional avenues for monetization.
I welcome your comments on the re-design as I strive to make TaxProf Blog and the Law Professor Blogs Network even more useful in your professional life. Once we work out any remaining kinks, my tech team will roll out the re-design across the entire network. For anyone interested, I posted the PowerPoint slides from the talk I gave on Law Professor Blogs Network 2.0: Faculty, IT and Vendor Collaboration in June at the 23rd Annual Conference for Law School Computing at Chicago-Kent College of Law (video here).
