Rating blawg influence

Nice: A social media company called Cision created a list of the most influential independent law blogs based on their own influence rating system and Grits for Breakfast logged in at number three, behind Above the Law and The Volokh Conspiracy. Not too shabby for a state-specific blog with no twitter feed, though the "independent" caveat apparently excluded heavy hitters like SCOTUSBlog, which is affiliated with a law firm. In any event, whatever their algorithm, "influence" really just means folks who read stuff here take what they learn and do something with it, either online or out in the world. In that respect, to the extent this blog has any particular influence, it's due as much to the readers as the correspondent. So thanks to everyone who reads Grits, thanks especially to those who act on what they read here, and a tip of the hat to Cision for the shout-out on their blawg list.

Grits is a must read in this profession.

Congratulations! Mark Bennett and I are only slightly jealous.

I am curious as to how Scott Greenfield's Simple Justice didn't make the list, though.

This reporter reads it, and does something with it. Beginning with I learn and ending with I share that knowledge. I learn from Grits and I learn from others on here many thanks to all for the knowledge you share.

Hey Grits, you did it man.

While we all initially arrived here via a gratious link provided somewhere else, the majority of us stayed for the grits and find ourselves returning for more on a daily basis.

When dinner and a movie includes a GFB, SJ, DP, & AHCL Update(s) and your date can relate and / or correct you, you know you are hooked. Thanks a million for what you do on behalf of the public at large.
