Letters Blogatory will be on vacation next week—Ontario here I come! Regular postings will resume after Labor Day. For readers in the northern hemisphere, I hope you have an enjoyable end to your summer. For those of you in Australia, Brazil, South Africa, and elsewhere in the southern hemisphere, spring is near!

I’ve given Letters Blogatory a new look! The main goals of the facelift were:
- To improve readability by increasing the size of the typeface and increasing the contrast between the background and the text.
- To provide a few new useful features, such as the “print” icon you will now find beneath a post after you click on the post’s title.
- To give Letters Blogatory a lighter, brighter look and feel.
- To keep the blog simple and focused on the posts, without a lot of images, video, or moving parts to slow things down or distract from the posts.
If the new look isn’t meeting these goals for you, or if there is something you would like to see that isn’t here , I hope you will let me know via the comments page or else in the comments to this post.
The next change in the works is a reformatting of the digests to make them more useful. That may take a while, so stay tuned!
The ABA is soliciting nominations for its 2011 “Blawg 100,” a listing of 100 blogs written by lawyers for lawyers. If you look at last year’s awards, you’ll see that there’s not even a category for international law blogs (though some international law blogs are included, for instance, the China Law Blog, in the “niche” category). I want to try to turn that around this year. So please take a moment and nominate Letters Blogatory for the list. You can submit a nomination at this link. I will also keep a link available on the right-hand column of the blog through September 9, which is when all nominations are due.
Thanks for reading Letters Blogatory!
