Koufax award nomination: Best Expert Blog

I am pleased to say Effect Measure was nominated (and not by us!) as a candidate for Best Expert Blog.
The Koufax Awards are named for Sandy Koufax, one of the greatest left handed pitchers of all time. They are intended to honor the best of the left of blogtopia. At its core, the Koufax Awards are meant to be an opportunity to say nice things about your favorite bloggers and to provide a bit of recognition for the folks who provide us with information, insight, and entertainment usually for little or no renumeration.
If you feel so inclined, head on over to Wampum and vote (by recording your choice as a Comment). I voted for Informed Comment, Juan Cole's indispensable Iraq blog, but if that's not your cup of tea you'll find many terrific candidates on the list.

We'd love a vote for Effect Measure, but we Reveres are realistic: pretty stiff competition and we're still new -- but coming on strong.

Update: We've heard from a couple of readers that they voted for Effect Measure at the Koufax Wampum site but the vote didn't register. The reason is that you have to vote by recording it as a Comment. Thanks to those of you who took the time to vote for us. It is much appreciated.

Update 2: It appears that we were also nominated for Best Single Issue Blog. We are surprised and very pleased.

Update 3 (Jan. 12, 2005): It appears we were also nominated for Best New Blog. We are surprised and somewhat befuddled.
