Out of over 400 nominations, Brain Blogger is a finalist for two Research Blogging Awards for 2010 in the categories Best Blog -- Neuroscience and Best Blog -- Psychology. The Awards honor "outstanding bloggers who discuss peer-reviewed research." We would like to thank the expert panel of judges who positively reviewed our site, the other blogs nominated, and to our team of over 35 writers. The voting process opened earlier today and the winners will be selected by bloggers registered with ResearchBlogging.org.
As we leave 2009, we have witnessed some great successes. First and foremost, increased awareness of health and healthcare issues, popularity of the mind and brain, and realization that our knowledge of how the brain works is still in its infancy. We at Brain Blogger have seen our readership and feed subscriptions triple from the preceding year, and we are grateful to our loyal readers.
We are seeking guest bloggers to contribute articles related to the mind-brain from any perspective. Dr. Frank MacHovec is our first guest with Is war a psychosis? He is a retired clinical psychologist teaching part-time at Piedmont Virginia Community College. He has written over 30 books, most recently Light from the East, a gathering of Asian wisdom, and Spiritual Intelligence, Behavioral Sciences, and the Humanities.
We at Brain Blogger have been officially tagged! Our volunteer technical consultant, Everton Blair of Connected Internet, listed our site on a new tag game. It focuses on technology, science, and consumer electronics sites. Everyone anticipates that the list will grow a "mile long." Apparently, this list is a rebirth of the infamous Z-List. Hopefully, this strategy will drive more attention to matters related to the brain and mental health (i.e. to this blog). Enjoy!
