Blogging my way to the Antarctica…and beyond

There is an online contest sponsored by Quark Expeditions to become the Official Quark Expeditions Blogger. The winner gets an all-expense paid excursion to Antarctica February 20 – March 3, 2010. And you could help send me to the South Pole - a dream of mine!

What does it take to be the Official Quark Blogger? They’re looking for someone with a commitment to the environment; a passion for the polar regions, and an ability to write in English with wit, style and imagination. That is SO me, don’t you agree? Oh, and someone popular enough for people to tune into. So that’s why I need you and everyone else you know to vote for me. The person with the most votes wins.

With each post, I share the exciting and wonderful world of science, conservation, environmental education and urban nature appreciation through my blog Urban Science Adventures! ©

I routinely posted about the polar biomes, including posts celebrating International Polar Year. I love sharing science; and I especially enjoy bringing the beauty and excitement of nature to someone’s attention who thought there was nothing there.

Just like I share my everyday backyard adventures with you, I will share accounts of the beauty and stories of adventure of life at the South Pole! You know I will. So, please send Urban Science Adventures! © on a Polar Adventure next spring.

The competition closes at noon, September 30, 2009, EDT. In order to vote you will need to register with the website (bots can’t vote) and one vote per email.

Visit my very own voting page and vote for me.


P.S.: If you’re feeling very generous (and still procrastinating with work/school), I’d love you this blog for the 2009 Black Weblog Awards Best Science and Technology Blog. Thanks to your generous support last year, this blog was a finalist for the award.
Nominations end July 25.
Please click on the image below and name Urban Science Adventures! © as your favorite Science Blog!

My site was nominated for a Black Weblog Award!

Hello, there, Danielle. I just voted for you on both counts - Quark and 2009 Blog Awards. Best of luck to you, you deserve both.

I also posted a link for my FaceBook friends to vote for you. Hope I read that you're off to the Pole, soon.

Can anyone recommend the top performing Software Deployment tool for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central network manager
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
