Happy 1st Birthday to Coverage Counsel
365 days ago I sat down at this computer in my den at home, signed up for Blogger, and started designing this blog. At 7:12 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, 2008, I published my first post on the Bi-Economy decision. That decision has proven to be a recurring and fertile source of material for this blog. 359 labels, 474 posts, 18,800 unique visitors, 39,353 visits, 64,614 page views, and innumerable hours in this green leather high back chair bring us to here. 25.67% of you have visited directly. 33.19% of you have come here from or through other blogs or websites. And 41.14% of you have made it here via a search engine. "Coverage Counsel" ranks first in search keywords, while "waiver of subrogation" and "Graves Amendment" remain firmly in the top 5.
This blog has been a discovery process for me. I've discovered how both fun and not fun writing can be sometimes. I've discovered how a blog can be an excellent vehicle for delivering information. Most importantly, however, I've rediscovered the enjoyment of following and reporting a body of law as dynamic and sometimes controversial as insurance coverage law is. I've also met, either in person or electronically, some very smart, very passionate, and very cool people.
Thank you for visiting and reading. I said at the beginning and will say again: if you have any suggestions for improving this blog, please let me know. Using the labels and search tools on this blog will make it easier for you to find the information you're looking for. And, if you haven't figured out yet how to subscribe to this blog in an RSS reader, consider subscribing to a weekly email newsletter by using the Feedblitz gadget on the right side of this page. Or just keep coming back via the ways in which you've been coming back.
If you like what you see and find this blog to be useful, please let me know, either in a comment or email. And pass a link along to someone who may not yet know about or read Coverage Counsel. Believe it or not, feedback of all kinds helps. It'd be nice to know from other than my regular commenters, that the hours I devote to this free resource are informative and helpful to folks who make, evaluate, pay, deny or litigate insurance claims. So, if you'd like to see Coverage Counsel make it to its 2nd birthday, let me know, will ya? I'm not fishing for compliments; I'm requesting validation, that's all. Thanks.
