Competition updates

I can hardly believe this, but I won the Nature Network poll for best blog post in 2008!


Thank you to everyone who went over and voted for me!

Since I'm so awesome, I've come up with the following "trophy" for the First Annual VWXYNot? Readers' Choice Comment of the Year Award! I just know that whoever wins is going to be delighted to display a photo of me on their blog.

Microbiologist XX and Ruchi have both upped the ante with posts encouraging their regular readers to vote, while current poll leader Massimo is taking the high road... at least for now. Nine days left, so if you haven't already voted, you know what to do!


  1. Congrats, Cath! Them's some good bragging rights!

  2. Woho! Congrats!! That is awesome! People loved it as much as I did then :)

    Happy Christmas!

  3. Well done you! Congrats from over here.

    Also - I had not considered a blog post promoting myself in this wonderful contest... although I did drop some hints here and there (including MXX's blog comments as I recall... cheeky, cheeky).

    Ah well, being nominated was an honour, as Bill Murray would doubtless say.

  4. Thank you both!

    Ricardipus, you seemed to be doing a pretty good job of dropping hints and leaving links in comment threads!

  5. well deserved, an awesome post it was!


I promise to respond to all respectful non-spam comments! Don't be shy! Oh, and please don't type my surname in your comments; I know you all know what it is, but I'd prefer Google to rank other pages before this blog.
