    Given all the media attention given to sex crimes — not to mention the fact that there are close to 1 million registered sex offenders in the US and perhaps millions more sex crimes every year (most of which are unreported) — I do not consider your blog, Corey, to involve a “very tiny niche.”

    That said, all you other comments are astute and confirm my impression that legal academics — especially pre-tenure ones — are likely better off doing niche-blogging than generic blogging. And, there are plenty of under-blogged topics in the criminal justice world to go around.
