  • Woo ThemesThe best resource for premium looking WordPress themes.


  • Bluehost: My websites are hosted on Bluehost. Easy to use, 1-click automatic WordPress installation, and excellent customer service. Highly recommended.

Associate’s Mind Free Documents:

This is a report I compiled about my experience on the first thirty days of a legal blogger. I have yet to see anything else out there like it. It’s a systematic breakdown of traffic, referrers, top posts, clicks, social media, rankings, etc. If you’re looking for some ideas of what to aim for when looking to start a law blog, I haven’t seen anywhere better to start.


Based on the research of Dr. Robert Jeffery Sternberg’s book, In Search of the Human Mind, the “Top Twenty Reasons Lawyers Fail” was on of my most popular posts initially. Taking Dr. Sternberg’s list of why intelligent people fail, I applied it to lawyers over the course of a number of posts. Eventually I compiled it into a single document for easy consumption.
