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 morning.

Council News:

I recently started writing for The Times of Israel. Anyone interested in checking out my opening salvo, entitled “Blaming the victim, with the best of intentions,” can find it here.

Ch-ch-ch-changes… This week, we bid farewell to our dear friends and Council mates The Mellow Jihadi and The Political Commentator. It has been great having them on the Council and they will both be sorely missed, although they will remain members of the WoW community. So we hope to hear from them and see them weigh in on the Forum from time to time.

On the flip side, that also means that there are two Council seats up for grabs. These tend to fill up quickly, so if you think you might be interested in joining the Council and want more information on what’s involved, please leave your name, the name of your site and your email address anywhere in the comments section (which won’t be published) over at Joshuapundit.

This week, Ask Marion and The Blue Ridge Forum earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

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.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an email 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…
