CHRISTMAS AS PRACTICED IN THE SCHAEFFER HOUSEHOLD . . . My 16-year-old daughter Lydia, who you might know from my podcast Litigation Radio #1, has always rolled her eyes at my Internet ventures. She was the model for the correspondent in Advice to Families of Lawyers #1, and she only reluctantly agreed to allow me to post her photo in a post about her trip to France.
Not only has Lydia been dismissive of weblogs, but she claimed she'd never start one, in part because she has "nothing to say." I didn't learn she was lying until yesterday, when she emailed a link to her new weblog, Lydia's Christmas List!
Frankly, it's not a bad model for a weblog. She'll only have to post once per year, and she'll always be writing about things she feels passionate about. And she already has a fan!
