DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?
Debbie Hines (DH): LegalSpeaks is a blog on law and politics from a progressive African American woman’s point of view. I cover legal and political issues mostly from a race and gender perspective.
DCSME: How did you pick the topic for LegalSpeaks?
DH: I am a lawyer and hence the legal aspect (“LegalSpeaks”). But politics and law are very intertwined together.
DCSME: How is LegalSpeaks different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?
DH: I blog from a race and gender angle on topics of law and politics. As an Ivy league educated African American woman born to working class parents, I believe my blog on law and politics speaks from a viewpoint that is rarely seen in more mainstream media.
DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?
DH: I would like to believe I am presenting another point of view to be considered on topics of law and politics. I also enjoy making the law more easily understood. My passion is law and politics so I love blogging
on both topics. I hope my passion shines through in my blogs.
DCSME: How often do you update LegalSpeaks?
DH: I update at least weekly. Beginning in 2011, I will be also doing video blogs and increasing the updating to 3-5 times a week.
DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?
DH: Please visit my blog @ LegalSpeaks and feel free to comment on any topics. I would love to hear from you.
