I have noticed concrete benefits for my Social Security disability law practice from this professional blog.
One unexpected benefit has been that the blog serves as a repository of legal knowledge for me. Legal blogmaster Kevin O'Keefe has mentioned this benefit, and he is correct. I actually find myself referring to my own blog for information.
For example, yesterday I needed a cite to the regulation regarding reopening a prior SSI claim. Well, I recently wrote about that issue, and the cite I needed was in that blog post. It was much quicker to look up the cite from the blog than to flip through the book searching for the specific regulation.
I never expected this blog to be so helpful to my everyday practice.
