Voting for the 2006 Medical Weblog Awards is now open

I should have announced three days ago that the polls are now open to vote for the 2006 Medical Weblog Awards. Polls will close at midnight on Sunday, January 14, 2007 (PST), and the winners will be announced on Friday, January 19, 2007.

I happen to be nominated for Best Medical Weblog, but the competition is fierce, with other deserving nominees including fellow ScienceBlogs Aetiology, The Examining Room of Dr. Charles, and Effect Measure, plus worthy non-ScienceBlogs such as Surgeonsblog, Flea, Kevin, MD, and the ever-skeptical Unintelligent Design. Unfortunately, as much as I’d like to, I can’t reveal which blogs I endorse for each category (other than endorsing myself for Best Medical Weblog, of course), because I happen to be one of the judges. (Medgadget is using a system where both judges and the readers vote for each weblog category, and the two vote tallies weighted 50-50 in determining the winners.) Sadly, that also means that I can’t vote in the category in which I’m nominated. Curse that wretched fairness!

Oh, well.

But you can vote for me if you like. Or vote for a different blog. Just head over to Medgadget and vote!
