Top Five Mediation Blogs
- On-line Guide to Mediation - Our Editor's Choice
(Written by Diane Levin, Marblehead, Massachusetts) Given the competition, selecting an Editor's Choice was an extremely difficult task. However, we finally narrowed our choice down to this blog which we feel is the best among a field of strong contenders. Smart, insightful, and highly readable, it consistently provides a surprising wealth of information relating to mediation, negotiation, law, and conflict management. It's excellent use of photographs also gives this blog an attractive and professional look. A great candidate to include in your browser's favorite's list.
- Mediator Blah...Blah...
(Written by Geoff Sharp, Wellington, New Zealand) Irreverent in tone, this blog ran a close second for Editor's Choice Award. Mediator Blah...Blah... never fails to deliver relevant content with a breadth of information that is very impressive, making this one of the best mediation blogs out there. Packed with useful information, this blog presents its information in a nice, clean, readable design. It's often downright funny, making it great for reading at the end of a tough day.
- Florida Mediator
(Written by Perry S. Itkin, Fort Lauderdale, Florida) Although somewhat regional in its scope, our top five list would not have been complete without including this veteran blog. Florida Mediator always contains items of interest to mediators, even those who are not from Florida. Because of its longevity, this blog also has an extensive archive collection. In short, this blog is a good read for a mediator in any geographic area, but a must read for any Florida mediator.
