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.

Council News:

Sometimes, you actually get to be a part of the news rather than merely reporting it. Our friend and Council Alumnus Sara over at the Independent Sentinel did just that and spent Sunday at the Million Vet March in DC.

If you want to know what really happened as opposed to what the talking heads in the media are peddling, she was there and she wrote these superb pieces about it, one of which is a Watcher’s Pick this week. But I recommend you read all of them… What Really Happened at the Million Vet March in DC, Mr. Obamachev, We Tore Down These Walls, Million Vet March on Stalag DC and Our Day in Obama’s DC Wasteland. Sara is a great reporter with a keen eye for detail and every one of these articles tell a story that needs to be told. Kudos, Sara!

This week, Ask Marion took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with a great article.

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 post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out Wednesday morning.

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, let’s see what we have this week…
