Hey, blogging involves researching, writing, & keeping an eye out for interesting information. Perhaps a new niche for paralegals whose firms publish blogs? Associates are already billing time for their blogging activity:
"To generate more content across the board, the firm has turned to its associates. Each Sheppard Mullin associate can count up to 50 hours a year for writing articles or recruiting efforts toward his or her minimum billable hour requirement of 1,950 and bonus threshold of 2,000 hours. The blogs have become a good way for associates to hit their numbers. For instance, Camelia Mazard, a D.C.-based antitrust associate, made her bonus in part by writing for the blog. She says she currently spends two to three hours per month researching and writing blog postings."
