The State of the Blog

You might have heard that I have a new blog, the Adams Contracts blog. It’s on the website of a new business, called … Adams Contracts. It’s a division of LegalSifter; we’re building automated contract templates. For more about Adams Contracts, go to our website, at

So, two blogs, and two spheres of activity. Here’s how I see this playing out.

This blog has been in existence for more than 17 years, and it has published more than 2,600 blog posts. It will keep on going, because my work on the building blocks of contract language will continue, and so will the related training I offer.

But that part of my work demands less attention now. Coming up with guidelines for the building blocks of contract language is a finite task. With the fifth edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, that task is close to being completed. I expect that there will be a sixth edition, but not for at least six years, and I doubt it will be as big of an upgrade as the second through fifth editions.

So with Adams Contracts, I’m turning some of my attention from the how-to-say-it part of contract drafting to the what-to-say party. That’s a different task, and a bigger one. I hope you’ll join me there, while keeping an eye on Adams on Contract Drafting. To make that easier, you’re welcome to go here and sign up for my revamped newsletter, featuring links to both blogs plus random musings.
