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.
