Over the past two weeks, I have received several emails like the following:
Due to my growing other commitments, I have taken steps to reduce the amount of time I devote to TaxProf Blog. Two weeks ago, I stopped doing the weekly tax, legal education, SSRN, and student tax note roundups. They take a lot of time to prepare, and although some folks found them useful, they generated comparatively little traffic. (If anyone would like to take over one or more of the weekly roundups as a service to the tax and legal education communities, please let me know.) I also restructured the management of TaxProf Blog and the Law Professor Blogs Network to reduce my administrative responsibilities. Over the next several months, I will roll out additional changes to TaxProf Blog.
Since the launch of TaxProf Blog over twelve years ago, I have made nearly 35,000 posts, which have attracted over 50,000 comments. The readership of this blog has continued to expand beyond my wildest dreams, with 2016 traffic clocking in at over 1.5 million page views per month. My fervent hope is that the changes to TaxProf will not detract from your enjoyment of the blog and that you will continue to visit daily to read about the latest tax and legal education news.
