Hundreds of thousands of legal blogs have been launched in the last decade—with more being added every day. And as a legal blogger myself, I know it can sometimes be a struggle to set your blog apart from the crowd. It’s tough to come up with new article ideas, find your voice and engage your readers.

But LexisNexis wants to help you set your blog apart from your competition—and we’re offering our assistance for FREE. Every two weeks we’ll send you this e-newsletter with blogging tips designed to help you generate new files and clients. In the coming months we’ll look at how to market your blog, build an audience, improve your articles’ search engine rankings and more.
