Blogging Scholarship

The finalists for the 2007 Blogging Scholarship have been announced. There’s 20 of them, and, from a quick perusal of the list, it appears that four of them are science bloggers. Two of those four are familiar to evolgen: Shelley of Retrospectacle and Kambiz of Anthropology.net. The other two are new to me, but appear to have actual science content: The Big Room and The Biourbanist.

At this point, you’re probably expecting me to tell you to go to the voting page and click a particular finalist. Well, I’m not going to do that. If you are a fan of science blogging, however, I suggest you vote for one of the four finalists linked above. If not, why the fuck are you reading this blog?

    I may not be a ScienceBlogger™, but I am a regular ScienceBlogs™ reader, and a little-s.b. science blogger.

    As operator and self-proclaimed maybe-genius of The Big Room, I wanted to say thank you for noticing, and:

    While I still have hope and would love to win some scholarship money, I’m not going to be the least bit surprised if Famous ScienceBlogger™ Shelley Batts whoops my butt (and everyone else’s) this year. Hey, I voted for her myself last year…

    I am more interested, though, in attracting interested readers, so even if you (Evolgen AND everyone else reading this) don’t feel like voting for me please consider making some comments and suggestions on some of my posts.

    If nothing else, perhaps I can attract enough of a fan-base to have a better shot at the prize next year from graduate school…

    As chief of the other small-time science blog in the running, I second Sean’s thoughts. Since The Big Room and The Biourbanist are currently only in heated competition for second-to-last-place, we would really prefer interested readers more than voters. Come visit either one of our blogs.
