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.
In which universe is he living? Or, as Mitt Romney said, “Is he really that out of touch?” Maybe what he meant was, “The private sector’s doing fine – well, at least Michelle and I are!”
This week’s contest is dedicated to the L.A. Kings for finally taking the Stanley Cup. And especially to this guy.
This week, Ask Marion, Right Truth, The Pirate’s Cove and Against All Enemies took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some great posts.
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 slide on 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 and return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week.
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?
