Watcher’s Council Nominations – Fall Back Edition

Submitted by on October 19, 2011 – 3:59 pm EST

The Watcher’s Council

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.

This week’s contest is dedicated to Gilad Shalit. Baruch shuvcha habayta, khayal shel Yisrael…

Council News:

Our good friend Brian over at Snapped Shot has decided to devote his energies to other pursuits instead of blogging and has resigned his seat on the Council. It’s been great having him and we’ll all miss his good humor and insights on photojournalism.

But hey… looky what we got here! I’m proud to announce the debut of two brand new Council members, Sard from The Right Planet and The Mellow Jihadi, both of whom bring unique outlooks and writing skills to the group. Both have previously appeared as Honorable Mentions and non-Council nominees and if you’re not already familiar with them, then you’re in for a real treat.

And speaking of Honorable Mentions, this week, Maggie’s Notebook and Capitalist Preservation took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned Honorable Mention status.

You can too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and leave a comment with the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with the mandatory e-mail address in case I need to contact you (it won’t be published), no later than Monday 6 PM PST. Then simply return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week. Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members, while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, without further ado, let’s see what we have this week…

Council Submissions

Honorable Mentions

Enjoy! And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter… ’cause we’re cool like that!
