I have initially nominated (and will vote for) Jenna (Jennifer Wong) of Cyberspace Rendezvous which is, in my opinion, the best student science blog around at this time and I hope you vote for her (but I cannot blame you if you choose Shelley instead).
What are the techie blogs doing on that list I have no idea. I do not think those are science blogs, but I am not running the contest. So, do your part to help a real science blogger beat the techies and get the money! Go now!
Update: Now I have looked at all 10 finalists and…wtf?! Why did I think this was for science bloggers? Only three are (Jenna, Shelley and anthropplogy.net) and we should all go and vote for thenm because the rest are…well, two I still have no idea what they are about after skimming the front page and sidebar, one is blogging friggin’ religion on Vox, one is a DailyKos diarist (is a Kos diary really a blog?) and the rest are techies. Why is Paul Stamatiou on there? He’s been on Technorati’s Top 100 list for, like, ages and probably rakes in more than 5 grand per year via blogads. He can also summon the greatest avalanche of readers to vote for him and sweep the board and leave the better bloggers in the dust. So, post the link to the vote on your blogs, please, and urge your readers to go and vote for Jenna.
