Now here’s an old post from January 2009:
Blog Awards and Shamelessness
Before I begin, allow me to surgically remove my modesty organ and place it way in the back of the freezer, near the frozen asparagus. Okay. I’m ready now.
It’s Blog Award Season, which nobody knew existed until very recently in our species’ history, with the Bloggies currently accepting nominations and the Weblog Awards currently in voting.
First of all, I’m going to shamelessly ask you to nominate Skepchick for some Bloggies if you think we deserve any. Possible categories: Best Topical, Best Writing, or Best Group, or maybe even Best-Kept Secret depending on how popular you think we are, I guess.
Secondly, I’m going to shamelessly ask you to nominate Teen Skepchick for Best Teen Blog, because even though it just started, it’s completely rad.
Bloggie nominations are open until Monday, January 12.
Thirdly, I’m going to shamelessly ask you to support Friends-of-Skepchick by also nominating them for Bloggies where you think it’s appropriate, and voting for them in these Weblog Award categories:
And for the category of Best Science Blog, well, you’re going to have to pick between Steve Novella at Neurologica, Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy, PZ Myers at Pharyngula, Greg Laden at, well, Greg Laden, and Marc Abrahams at Improbable Research. Last year this was a tight battle that ended with Phil tied with ClimateAudit (apparently a global warming denial site), but I’m hoping that all our pals make a good showing and at least pick up some good publicity from the honor.
You can vote once a day, so if you can’t bear to pick just one in the science category, just spread out your votes! Oh, but if you want to be sure to beat the global warming denialists, it looks like you should vote for PZ.
This concludes my most immodest post of the year thus far. Excuse me while I retrieve my modesty organ and attempt to reinstall it properly.*
*Oh let’s face it, my modesty organ has been malfunctioning for at least a decade.
