Best of April’s Blogs: Opportunities, Asking for Business, and Making Cool Videos

This is my 41st post in a series of monthly features that I have dubbed “Best of My Blog Roll.” The concept is simple – at the end of a month I peruse my own blog roll (see that column on the right) for material created by other bloggers that I think is most worthy of sharing with others, and then I report on it here.

Reviewing blog posts for the month of April, I have chosen to highlight the following:

  1. A post on the Cordell Parvin blog entitled “Three Days That Changed My Career Forever.” In this post, Cordell provides three short, concrete examples of exceptional opportunities that came his way because of extra-curricular activities outside of the office.
  2. A post on the LawVision INSIGHTS blog by Craig Brown about “How to Ask for Work.” Craig does a nice job of explaining, from the client’s point of view, all of the predicates leading up to “the ask” which make the final step so much easier.
  3. A post by Lindsay Griffiths on her Zen and the Art of Legal Networking blog, entitled, “Video Isn’t Just for Hollywood… It’s for Lawyers Too.” Lindsay gives some good tips for making a successful video, including elements of style, length, script and other elements.
