I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Martin Holladay for more than 10 years, so it came as no surprise to me that his passion for sustainable building and his journalistic chops were recently recognized by the website Retro Renovation. The site’s regular blogger, Pam Kueber, told readers that Martin is “pretty much my favorite blogger in the universe.”

Martin, who writes the Musings of an Energy Nerd blog for Green Building Advisor, has developed a loyal following because of a level of journalistic integrity that’s often missing from other green-building blogs. Pam writes, “The #1 reason I love Martin’s columns: He is data driven. If a product claims it will save energy — and therefore, money — he digs for the research to see if it really did, or will. Furthermore, he bakes in how much it costs to buy and install the product — to determine the final financial/environmental calculus. I have not been able to find this level of practical, data-driven, environmentally-focused home improvement journalism anywhere else online.”

Well done, Martin. Keep up the good work.

    I think you've earned a day off
    ... but we'd all miss your work and words for sure.

    Thanks, Martin. It's great to be recognized, but you deserve a .... something. How 'bout a beer?

    Response to Joe
    Thanks. Because of my increasing work load, the GBA team decided to switch my blogging schedule from every Friday to every other Friday. That helps with the work load, but it's not quite the same as a day off.

    There's a beer waiting for me at quitting time, in any case.

    Accolade well earned
    I too look forward to all of Martin Holladay's regular blogs. They are always well researched and informative. He seems like someone who not only talks the talk but walks the walk. Keep it up.
