You’ll notice an important addition to the MyShingle sidebar – a list of "Other Shingles." There, you’ll find listed websites and weblogs for other solo and small firm practitioners. It’s a public service that will always be available free for any solo and small firm lawyer – so if you want to join the party, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add you to the list.
But, as we all know, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. So, here’s what I’m asking in return.
For those shinglers whom I’ve listed on the site, I’d like you to visit
as many of the other shingles as you can. And I’d like you to

phone call) for whatever reason. Perhaps there’s another shingler who went to your law school or one with a neat practice area
or someone who practices just down the street or one with a website that’s particularly impressive to you. If anything comes of this virtual meet-and-greet, please let me know
