This week the Inforrm blog reached the important milestone of 3,000 posts. We have been posting since January 2010 so that is an average of something like 11 posts a week. Over that period we have had 2.8 million page views – an average of over 900 views for each post.
The blog now has a large archive of legal and media material – which can be searched using the search box on the front page – or by the “Categories” or “Tags” on the bottom right. In addition, we have our Table of Media Law Cases – with links to cases and comments from cases from early 2010.
It is impossible to provide a representative selection of the 3,000 Inforrm posts but we will mention 10 posts which we think readers might like to read:
