The Confrontation Blog

The Confrontation Blog "is devoted to reporting and commenting on developments related to Crawford v. Washington, 541 U.S. 36 (2004). Crawford transformed the doctrine of the Confrontation Clause, but it left many open questions that are, and will continue to be, the subject of a great deal of litigation and academic commentary." The author is Richard D. Friedman, a professor at the University of Michigan School of Law.

A speaker I heard the other day (I'm at the annual meeting of the American Association of Law Libraries) gave this as an example of a blog focused on a fairly narrow topic. If this is a topic you care about, it could be very valuable. And since it's so focused, it seems to have only a handful of posts per month, so you won't be overwhelmed by a flood of information.
