Welcome to 2023. Adventures await us!
It's a choose-your-own-adventure year here at Law Dork!
Welcome to 2023.
We made it! And, for now, I’m going with optimism.
And, while many folks have off today, I am sitting here at the coffee shop, reading up on what we’re expecting in the coming days and weeks and getting ready for the new year’s coverage. And, of course, typing away.
I’ll have a regular newsletter Tuesday, but, for now, it’s time for some planning and beginning-of-the-year thoughts.
I can’t believe that I am closing in on 7,000 subscribers! I’m thrilled and so grateful for the support and, frankly, attention that Law Dork has gotten in its first six months. As part of that, I’m figuring out what things should look like here this year.
Don’t expect big changes, but I am going to try out some things to see if I can get some more features going — regular items that I’ll be including throughout the year. Part of that will be original coverage and I’m looking at different ways of doing that in the new year, but I also want to use Law Dork to highlight other important work more often now that I’ve established myself here a bit.
So, if you see something new at Law Dork, please weigh in — in comments or by email! Let me know if you like it or not (and why!), so that I can keep improving Law Dork. And, if there’s something that I’m not covering or doing but that you think I should be covering or doing, let me know that, too!
I also want to take this moment to give a special thank you to the 555 of you who have contributed to the beginning months of Law Dork with a paid subscription. When I started Law Dork at the end of June, I had no idea if it would work — and who would actually be willing to pay for my work.
I’ve still got a long way to go to make this a viable stand-alone job, but with your support, I’ve made an incredible start — and it’s actually going according to plan, which is great and, honestly, pleasantly unexpected!
I have had some difficulty figuring out how to give something extra to paid subscribers, though, so, I thought it best to just ask!
