This morning I turned on my computer and started surfing around the internets, only to find this blog included on a list of 50 must read women scientist bloggers at the Health Zone Blog here, in an article with this descriptor:
Women have long played an important role in scientific developments and discourse, however, this role has historically received relatively less recognition and coverage as compared to their male counterparts. Over the last few years, however, blogging has opened up a way for leading women in science to bring to light the important improvements women have made, the struggles they still encounter, and the strategies they set up for their work to be recognized.
Go on over there and look at the list if you have a moment, there are some terrific blogs listed. And, I have to say- it’s the absolute highlight of my short blogging life to be included on the same list with Female Science Professor (as something of an FSP groupie). Much of the rest of the list includes a blogging community that I’ve come to know over the last year or so, whose trials and tribulations (and victories) I follow, and whose participation with comments on this blog keep the discussion interesting. It feels great to be part of this community!
I am particularly proud of Drug Monkey for making the list 🙂
Congrats though, there are a lot of good blogs on there, including this one.
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy dance!
I sent a similar list of women bloggers (and allied men) to my advisors, students, colleagues a while back – I agree, you are a must read. 🙂
drdrA, if I had to make a top 5 list for myself, you and FSP would both be on it! That’s how much I love your blog. It’s one of the most helpful ones out there. There are many out there that I enjoy or find funny and entertaining or interesting, but for professional improvement, you are a MUST READ! 🙂 So that list totally had it right! 🙂
prof like substance- I know- THAT was funny…love love love the drugmonkey…:-)
jc- OH that’s why my readership is ever expanding! And- FYI- you always have great contributions and links- so thanks for that…
PhizzleDizzle- Thanks for saying so- I’m so glad that I can be helpful… hence the reason that I write this blog!
Congrats! Well deserved. I’m not at all surprised to see you up there with FSP (whom I also follow).
congrats on making the list, like the others said I would totally put you as a must read. I am happily surprised to have been included in a list with so many great female bloggers. It is an honor.
I know, it’s super cool! Congratulations, you are a daily compulsive click for me, and I very much value the advice and perspective you’ve shared.
