Update: Thanks to everyone who voted. The contest is over; it has been declared a tie. That’s a little odd because at last count, Bad Astronomy was ahead. But it’s likely there were trickerations on both sides. Oh well.
Thousands of Google Reader users subscribe to Cognitive Daily’s feed via the Google Science bundle. This means you’ve chosen to seek out the best science content on the internet. Most Google Reader users never click through to this site to read our posts — and that’s fine with us. You’re busy people.
However, I would like to ask you do one thing for us in the name of promoting good science on the internet. Vote for Bad Astronomy in the Weblog Awards Best Science Blog Contest. You can vote as often as once a day, and I encourage you to take advantage of that option.
Why? Because several influential political blogs are advocating voting for a denialist website (“Climate Audit”) to win the award. Climate Audit is a pseudoscience blog that promotes political ideas as “science.” Bad Astronomy has a slim lead, but Climate Audit is gaining. Even if you’re not a fan of astronomy, you should still vote for this blog (a great blog, by the way). It’s the best chance for a genuine science blog to win the award.
