Bora is angling for a berth on the new Beagle

How else can you explain the fact that he has singled out our very own Beagle Project Blog as one of ten "Excellent" blogs out of some 1500 blogs on which he keeps regular tabs (a fact divulged only after consuming at least two exceptionally large glasses of beer at the Radisson after the SciBlogCon in January)?

And as if that weren't good enough, it comes with a shiny new badge for our sidebar! Okay, so what if it looks like an eye exam for drunkards?

Sure, some people have actually had their work published in the Science Blogging anthology, but there are over fifty of them, and yet only ten of us! And sure, because this E-thing is a meme, probably the whole blogosphere will have one of these in their sidebar by the end of the week, but only ten of us can claim that we got ours directly from Bora.

Though no official rules appear to have come along with this thing, it seems that we're supposed to pick ten recipients on whom to bestow the badge. So without further ado, here are ten blogs, in no particular alphabetical order, that I deem Excellent (though like the others I am avoiding blogs from the Borg):
A Somewhat Old, But Capacious Handbag
Cephalopodcast
Charles Darwin's Beagle Diary
Free Range Academy
Inky Circus
The Barcode of Life Blog
The Dispersal of Darwin
The Other 95%
The Red Notebook
The Tiny Aviary

As I've already explained, there are eight Boras:
