What is a science blog?

What makes a blog a science blog? Is it one written by a scientist, even if much of their posts are concerned with fighting rampant creationism? Is it a blog that ostensibly claims to be about science issues, even if many would suggest their position is motivated at least as much by politics as by science?

So are the 2007 Weblog awards right to list all the blogs they list as science blogs (no link as their page is s-l-o-w)?

This isn't a science blog, of course. It's a blog by someone who is a scientist, among other things.
