I decided to obtain a domain name for the civil lawyer, appropriately entitled the-civil-lawyer.net. I have been informed by the blog gods that apdownie.blogspot.com is diverting traffic to the new site so no need to change your bookmark (at least for now).
I was inspired to do this by a copyright matter I am involved in which considers the use of domain names with useful terms in them to increase search popularity. With this in mind, the-civil-lawyer.net seemed more descriptive than apdownie.blogspot.com.
Otherwise nothing has changed here.
