The Watcher’s Council Nominations – September Song Edition

The Watcher’s Council

Ah, September!

It’s one of the more interesting months, somehow not quite summer, but not quite Autumn. It’s a transition month between the two, a time for ramping things up as we head for the year’s end. And that’s never more true than in an election year.

The conventions, watched by one of the smallest audiences ever, are over and done with as Americans begin, as they historically do, to pay close attention to the elections.

In spite of a massive campaign by the media to convince the American people that the campaign is over and Barack Obama is headed towards re-election, the real, uncooked numbers suggest otherwise and the election pretty much remains a dead heat, and likely will until the debates. I guarantee you, a lot more people will be watching the debates than the conventions.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive and well written 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:

This week, Right Truth, The Pirate’s Cove, Maggie’s Notebook and Ask Marion took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent pieces.

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 anywhere) in the comments section, no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category.

Then just return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on 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…
