Gini Nelson\’s Engaging Conflicts

Lawyers Blog More Than Mediators (and Mediators Blog Hardly At All)

Filed under: Business,Wikis and Podcasts and Blogs, Oh My! — Gini @ 9:23 am

Lawyer bloggers are ahead of mediator bloggers. Law blogs emerged in 2002, and, from a handful, the number has grown to over 1,500, according to a recent article published on the American Bar Association web site. Mediator blogs, in comparison, languish as an active “sport.” Indeed, Diane Levin, a mediator, trainer and attorney in the Greater Boston area, reports that there are today perhaps only 59 – yes, 59 – active blogs either devoted to alternative dispute resolution or regularly featuring posts about ADR, including Engaging Conflicts. Her blog, Online Guide to Mediation, was one of the first (in January 2005, I think). A leader then, she has maintained her commitment to excellence in blogging, and has started a new project, a directory of ADR blogs, found here.



  1. Hi, Gini, thank you kindly for linking not only to my blog but to my ongoing web project, the Directory of ADR Blogs. It is a delight to know that a thoughtful voice like yours has joined the conversation. My hope is that the popularity of blogging among mediators and conflict resolvers will continue to grow, just as it has among lawyers.

    Thank you for the contributions that you and your blog make to the quality of conversation on the Internet!

    Best wishes,

  2. Diane,
    Thank you! As you know, blogging can be a great, creative enterprise, and I, too, hope more mediators and other conflict specialists will exercise their voices this way.
    Best wishes,
