Silly 'Vote For Us!' Post

from the ah,-lawyers dept

Normally, I avoid this sorta thing, but since we've received a few messages from supporters urging us to promote this more widely, the ABA Journal (that is, the publication from the American Bar Association) has highlighted Techdirt as one of the "top 100 law blogs," specifically in the "IP Law" section. It's basically us and (you guessed it) a bunch of lawyers. They let people "vote" on which they like, though I don't think voting actually means anything. But, if it warms your heart (as some of you have suggested) to see Techdirt get more votes than a bunch of patent lawyers, well, then go ahead and vote. Seriously, though, some of those other blogs are quite good and I'm not a huge fan of the idea that blogs are "competing" with each other in any way. If you aren't reading some of those other blogs, at least check them out.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
