Outdoor Science in top 0.05% of science bloggers in 2010

Posted by vivienne

Great news for Outdoor Science. My blog post “A tale of death, derring-do and barometers” is among 50 picked for this year’s edition of The Open Laboratory – an anthology of “the best in science writing on blogs”. To get into Open Lab, my story about how a storm could solve the decade-long mystery of who first conquered Mount Everest beat almost 850 other blog posts.

I’m a full-time writer, but I’m amazed to be featured in print alongside science writing stars like Deborah Blum, Carl Zimmer, Ed Yong and Steve Silberman.
