Top Picks – Some of our favourite blogs at AWAL

Written by Allison Wolf

The list of our favourite blogs is long so we thought of sharing four that are worthy of a visit when you have a quiet web surfing moment over the holidays:

We love Susan Cain’s Quiet Revolution blog, which is like club headquarters for introverts. Don’t know who Susan Cain is? She is the author of Quiet – The Power of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking. If you haven’t had a chance to read this, do put it at the top of your list for 2016. The Quiet Revolution site is a valuable repository of articles and information and comes with a weekly Sunday on-line round-up of articles. If you are on the introverted side of the spectrum, the book and blog site will be a breath of fresh air for you. If you are extroverted it is important to learn more about your opposites – the introverts – so that you can better collaborate, teach, lead, parent, love, communicate, and understand the quieter side of life.

Of course, Attorney at Work, and Ruth Carter’s column Nothing But the Ruth are on our list. Here’s one post we particularly liked: A More Purposeful Life – Rethinking Time.

Of course we must mention Ms. JD the organization and corresponding blog that “celebrates women’s achievements, addresses remaining challenges, and facilitates continued progress by bringing legal practitioners and law students together to share in an ongoing conversation about gender issues in law school and the profession.”

And in closing, if you don’t know it, do check out Jeena Cho and Karen Gifford’s The Anxious Lawyer Blog. Here’s a great recent post 5 Ways to Set Boundaries (Nicely) Over the Holidays.
