Today, MyShingle celebrates its seventh birthday.  When I started back in 2002, there were only 100 blogs and now, blogging is all the rage.   And though I do take some pride that I was ahead of the curve, I didn’t start MyShingle to be trendy.  Instead, I wanted to shine a spotlight on what’s been true about solo and small firm practice throughout the ages:  what we do matters.  As I wrote earlier this year:

Because what the best of solos do best is simply showing up, day after day, year after year.   By showing up, we can make a client’s life a little less stressful.  We can change a judge’s perspective or reverse an injustice.  We can keep a family in their home or help a client get a fresh start.  Most importantly, we keep the wheels of our judicial system turning by ensuring that access to justice isn’t determined solely by access to huge amounts of money. 

Thank you to all my readers and solo and small firm lawyers for seven great years.

    No, we thank you. Every solo I know owes you a debt of gratitude for your wonderful book and this great blog with all its practical advice and inspiration.
    Happy birthday, Carolyn!

    Happy blog birthday to you! This makes our blogs practically twins, born just a few weeks apart. Here is the post I wrote back then about the launch of your blog. In the years since, your blog has become even better with age.
