Yes, I somehow got nominated for this silly competition (as Shel Holtz called it on FIR this week). And as Sally Falkow rightly points out it is hardly a referendum on true value. It is actually more of a popularity contest, of which I have never been very successful.
But call it what you may, it is a great honor to be nominated, and I would be lying if I didn't admit that it would be very nice to win at least the first round.
One problem though. I am up against the esteemed Richard Edelman's 6 am blog and his very smart and loyal readership. As such, I would ask that my loyal readers take a minute between now and Friday at 5 to cast a vote my way so that I don't get completely routed. Vote here before 5 pm Friday if you are so inclined to do so.
And if you just are looking for good content and could care less about an egocentric blogging competition (and who could blame you), I have rounded up the 10 most read posts in 2008.
