Well, it is that time of year again. Blog awards. Time to honor your favorites in many categories.
The way it works is that we start with nominations. The blogs that get the most nominations wins a spot in the voting contest. From then on it’s a horse race to see how many blog readers can vote once each day to determine the winner.
Last year, WUWT won “Best Science Blog”. I certainly didn’t expect it. Neither did many others. It made a few people angry. It was funny to watch.
This year, I’m feeling that Steve McIntyre’s Climate Audit is more deserving of that award than WUWT for two reasons.
1. He got a bum deal in 2007, CA would have won had it not been for a security hole in the voting system
2. He’s made some tremendous strides this year, particularly in the area of Yamal and getting some headway in data access through FOI and dogged persistence.
If you don’t like those choices, some other worthy up and coming climate science blogs are:
The Air Vent – Jeff Id
The Blackboard – Lucia
Some other favorites of mine in other categories are:
Small Dead Animals – Kate (Best Canadian Blog)
The Reference Frame – Lubos Motls (Best European Blog)
While I can offer a couple of my own favorites, you folks nominate whomever you want. Here’s the page to nominate for Best Science Blog:
And here is the page for categories for general nominations:
Note that you must submit both the blog URL as well as the blogg RSS feed URL this year, not sure why.
To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:
Or…you can just skip all that and use their little plus sign icon for nominations already in place:
To submit other nominations:
For Climate Audit the URL is:
For WUWT the URL is:
To find the RSS feed location on other blogs, just look for something that says “RSS” or RSS Feed” or something like that and copy the link URL into your nomination form.
Whomever you nominate, thanks for participating.
