Fellow ScienceBlogger Shelley Batts is a finalist for a student blogging scholarship. Not only is she a fine blogger, but she shares with me a connection with the University of Michigan, where she is now working on her Ph.D. and where I got both my undergraduate and graduate degrees.
So, with that combination of good blogging, fellow ScienceBlogger, and fellow Michigan student (albeit separated in time by about 16 years), I can’t help but urge you all to vote for Shelley for the blogging scholarship. There’s only one day to go, as voting ends at midnight on November 5. What other of the finalists can say they’re part of the prestigious ScienceBlogsc collective? But don’t just believe me about this; go over to Shelley’s blog Retrospectacle and see for yourself that she’s deserving of this prize.
