A few years ago I read Chris Brogan’s blog post The Writing Practice. I looked at it again recently.

It is a great piece well worth reading. He discusses how he comes up with ideas and how those ideas become a blog post. Then he makes the point that you should always be practicing your writing. I agree.

As you know, I wrote  a monthly column for Roads and Bridges magazine for close to 25 years. I know my columns got better over time.

I began writing this blog in 2006. I hope 10 years later my posts are better than the posts I wrote those first few months.

If you are a young lawyer take an assignment you just finished and create an article or a blog post that potential clients would find valuable. Do it just for practice.

Then do it again after the next assignment. Ask yourself how your potential clients would benefit from reading what you have written.
