The blogger’s blogger, GrrlScientist from the blog Living the Scientific Life, is trying win a competition to get sent to Antarctica to blog about for the public. Having met Grrl and even co-chaired a session with her on Nature Blogging at the Science Online ’09 conference, I can tell you first hand that is THE most qualified candidate for this position! If you aren’t following her blog already you are missing out on some of the most interesting posts on bird biology, ecology and behavior as well as New York city life and other natural history writing.
Please take time out of your day to read about her excitement for this opportunity, her 300 word personal essay for the competition and sign in and vote for her. She is in second place and I would personally love to read her writing on Antarctica! Signing in is painless and I have never recieved any junk mail from Quark Expeditions or anything else out of the ordinary. You will be doing not just her a favor but the public at large a favor by sending a qualified, excellent writer on an amazing opportunity for the sole purpose of relating the experience in words and pictures for YOU!
