RIP Pressing Politics: The blogging days are over

I knew today would come eventually, and it finally has. I started this blog last year partially out of boredom and partially as a vice. Now it’s time to put it to bed.

Some of you may have noticed that the frequency of my posts has dropped considerably and that’s because, shockingly, law school is time consuming.

The time has come where I have to focus almost exclusively on my education and ultimately my professional career which begins next month. I just want to take this opportunity to thank all who have read my musings over the past year and have conversed with me on different issues. It’s been fun, and this turned into much more than I ever thought it would (thanks David Cochrane, James McLeod, Paddy Daly and any other journalist/broadcaster/media type who broadcasted this blog to the masses with their large twitter followings). Getting my name in Hansard was a high point which will forever maintain my nerd ego (Thanks Jerome Kennedy, Steve Kent, Dwight Ball and Andrew Parsons).

Through this process I’ve met/talked to a lot of great people. Most of all, I’ve learned *a lot* (thanks Ed Hollett for disagreeing with me all the time; doing the research to argue with you is time consuming but enlightening).

I recommend blogging for anyone who has the time and desire.

You stay classy, #nlpoli.

    Sorry to hear you’re stopping, but I’d point out that Omar Ha-Redeye, Garry Wise, and James Morton are all active professional lawyers, and they still blog.. so I’ll hope you’ll reconsider.

  2. Not only that, but blogging as a lawyer can significantly enhance your career. Drop me a line and we can discuss.
