I win, thanks to everyONE…

I win! Fame! Glory! People fanning me with palm-fronds! Muhahahaha! Kneel before Zod!… Ahem. Regains composure…

Bora Zivkovic of A Blog Around the Clock fame has graciously awarded the first Blog Post of the Month award from everyONE – the new blog from the open-access journal PLoS ONE – to the post I wrote about ballet dancers. Every month, Bora looks at blog posts that have reviewed PLoS ONE papers and picks one out for an accolade.

I’m very pleased, especially since the other blog posts in the running included stuff from some of my favourite writers – Christie of Observations of a Nerd, SciCurious from Neurotopia and Mo from Neurophilosophy.  Nice to see PLoS ONE’s papers attracting work of such calibre – I’d put good money on any of these names appearing on future winner announcements.
