Jill Walker wins Meltzer Foundation’s prize for excellence in research dissemination - aka academic blogging

If I were ever asked to name the Grand Dame of academic blogging the name would trip lightly off my tongue...Jill Walker. Reading Jill/txt is, without a doubt, the fire that helped many academic bloggers decide to not only blog but also to blog under our own names. I have to admit I was just this side of a giddy fan when I met her in person.

In a time where people are still debating the career impact of blogging for academics - will we be passed over for hiring because we blog; and will our blogs count for something in the amazing melee that is teaching, research, and service - Jill has taught, published, moved into administration, and continued to have a personal life all of which are discussed on her blog. Now Jill's accomplishment as a blogger has been rewarded with a Meltzer Foundation prize for excellence in research dissemination through blogging. The prize includes an award of 100,000 kroner, which if the Universal Currency Converter is correct is about $16,104 (USD). Blogging has arrived as a communication tool for researchers.

Congratulations Jill, I'm sure you didn't set out on this path to pave the way for the rest of us but you have done so never the less. We thank you and keep up the good work.
