The first few months of the year are traditionally awards season in the film industry, and in the blogging world it’s no different. I got back from a well-deserved and fabulous holiday a few days ago to discover I’m shortlisted for a Research Blogging award in the category of Best Research Blog in Chemistry, Astronomy or Physics. Yay and thanks judges!
Well done also to all the other finalists and in particular also to Martin Robbins’ Lay Science blog, which is a contender for the Best Lay-Level Blog – I’ll take a teeny bit of credit for that too. Martin is also up for Best Blog Post, go check out the nominated post here.
All members of Research Blogging will be invited to vote for their favourites in early March and I certainly intend to cast votes for my favourite blogs. If you want to be able to vote and write about peer-reviewed research, go sign up! I’d definitely like to see some more astronomy blogs on the site.
