[INSERT NAME OF BLAWG, PODCAST, TWITTER HANDLE] CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE ABA JOURNAL’S WEB 100
(Insert CITY, STATE - DATE) - Editors of the ABA Journal have selected [BLAWG, PODCAST, TWITTER HANDLE Name] to the 2018 ABA Journal Web 100, as one of the 100 best digital media for a legal audience.

The Web 100 honors legal blogs, podcasts, social media and as of 2018, web tools. In addition, the magazine has added five more bloggers to its Blawg Hall of Fame—featuring the very best law blogs, known for their untiring ability to craft high-quality, engaging posts sometimes on a daily basis.

“The web is a constantly evolving space, and we enjoy shining a light on new and useful blogs, tools and people for legal professionals to follow,” Editor and Publisher Molly McDonough said. “We started this project as the Blawg 100 in 2007, but over the years have broadened the scope to include podcasts and social media. This year, we added a category to explore tools that have practical applications for your day-to-day life as a lawyer. We hope the Web 100 provides readers with entertainment, engagement and a way to keep abreast of the newest developments in the legal industry.”
