251 to 243 to 118…we can win this thing for Grrl!!

June 26, 2009

This would be totally cool. No, really.
As noted over at Grrl Scientist’s blog, Quark Expeditions is running a contest to select a blogger to join them for a trip to Antarctica.

Quark Expeditions is searching for an Official Blogger to join a voyage to Antarctica. Do you have a passion for the polar regions? A commitment to the environment? An insatiable urge to photograph penguins?

Hello? A blogger who specializes in photographs and ecology and genes and behavior and all bloody things bird? Who else could possible be better than Sb’s own Grrl Scientist at blogging an expedition? I mean, d00d, she even handles cold weather!
As of today I notice that Grrl is sitting in second place with 243 votes, close behind the current leader at 251. The two next-best placed folks are at 118 and 100 votes. That’s it? A few hundred votes* is going to decide this thing? Get cracking people! Go over there and vote for Grrl.
*The need to register in order to vote may be cutting down the numbers a bit so be prepared to make a few extra clicks. It’ll be worth it!

    The Pharyngulation wasn’t as successful as one might expect. PZed should have told them it was a poll.

    I voted, and as far as I can tell you’re now in the lead with 330! You go Grrl!
    I guess you may need to keep up the publicity until September though, it’ll be a tough job! Try going for the ‘well, if you REALLY loved ScienceBlogs you’d vote’ line

    459 to 425, Grrl is in the lead for now. It is one vote per valid email so use all of your email addresses people!
