The winners of the Researchblogging contest have been selected.
I was rudely confronted with the harsh reality that I lost from a fellow Philosophy, Research, or Scholarship blogger, Richard Grant of Confessions of a (former) Lab Rat (and previously of Life of a Lab Rat).
Very subtle Richard just left a note: “Sorry”.
“Thanks” Richard! And congratulations from the bottom of my heart… (no kidding, I really mean congrats!)
But in one respect you were wrong. You said: “We don’t have the sort of blogs that win awards” Well at least you were half wrong.
Ed Yong of Not Exactly Rocket Science (No?) deserves a special mention, because he won in 3 (!) categories: Research blog of the year, blog post of the year and best lay-level blog. So if you don’t know this blogger it may well be worthwhile to take a look at his blog.
Of course this is also true for all other winners (depicted below).
You can visit their blogs and/or see their Research Blogging (RB) Page.
Congrats to all winners! And heads up to all other finalists. You’re winners too!
