Blatant Self-Promotion

Each year, LexisNexis “honors a select group of blogs that set the online standard for a given industry.” This year, they expanded Top Blogs to include their Business Law Communities.

Compliance Building is one of the nominated candidates for the LexisNexis Top 25 Business Law Blogs of 2010, featured on the LexisNexis Corporate & Securities Law Community and the LexisNexis UCC, Commercial Contracts & Business Law Community.

Looking at the list of candidates, I see many blogs that I read regularly. If you are looking for a list of business law blogs to read, the list of nominees is a great place to start.

I think most of the nominated blogs are much better than mine. Whether its on quality, popularity, or some other factors, there is no way I will make it into the top 25. I will sit back and take the consolation prize: the honor of being nominated.

Lexis Nexis invites you to comment on the announcement post at either of the following links:

Top 25 Business Law Blogs 2010 – Corporate & Securities Law Community

Top 25 Business Law Blogs 2010 – UCC, Commercial Contracts & Business Law Community

To comment, you have to register. Registration is free and supposedly does not result in sales contacts. The comment period for nominations ends on October 8, 2010. They don’t say how they will end up selecting the top 25 out of the nominees other based on their review and your comments.

I’m also not sure how the Lexis-Nexis Communities fits in with the Martindale Hubbell Connected platform. There seems to be whole lot so substantive information in Communities that is missing in Connected. They should get these two sites together.

Vote for the business law blogs you feel are the best. Include Compliance Building if you think it’s worthy.

    Congratulations on being nominated and best of luck. As the Director in charge of the LexisNexis Communities and Connected, I can say you’ve hit the nail on the head. We should “get these two these two sites together,” and we are. Let’s just say, the engagement ring has been exchanged and the wedding plans are underway.

    In the redesign of Connected we added a Communities dropdown menu, which includes links to the LexisNexis Communities pages under the heading “LexisNexis” groups. Right now, the two sites live independently of each other, and do not appear in each others’ search results. You can however use your Connected registration on both sites.

    All of that is going to change in the near future as we are working to integrate the Communities pages to Connected, meaning you will be able to search, comment on, and share this content with your Connected profile. The LexisNexis Communities will essentially be content and member rich “groups” within Connected, allowing members to enjoy the full networking functionalities of connected while having full access to the rich content in the communities.

    Until that time comes, our Community Management team is working to surface relevant content from the communities for connected members. We leverage the content across the board and hope only to bring the most relevant content in the most appropriate times to the most appropriate group of users.

    Congratulations again.
