The Truth About BoB and the Owl
Yesterday, despite my illness, I managed to struggle to an upright position (someone has to feed the birds so they don't riot), checked my email, and then discovered that Scientific Life is listed as a finalist in the Second Annual Best of Blogs Awards. Gee, until just now, I had no idea that the BoBs existed and yet, out of more than 2,000 nominees, here I am, a finalist in one of their categories! But which category is Scientific Life in? Is it in "Best Science Blog"? No. Is it in "Best Bird Blog"? Nope. Is it in "Best Unclassifiable Blog"? NO! Put on your rubbers (I mean galoshes, of course), dear readers, because Scientific Life is a finalist in the "Biggest Blog Whore" category.
What exactly is a blog whore? Apparently, engaging in shameless self-promotion (i.e.; participating in blog carnivals), in addition to referring to all three of you as "dear readers", has qualified me as a finalist for this unique blog award category.
Even though I don't stand a ghost of a chance of winning against the likes of WebKittyn (who will win solely based on her name), I learned that winning this award is a Really Good Thing; besides impressing potential employers by mentioning this award on my CV, I also win ...
