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.
Well, guess what… we have another WoW birthday to celebrate!
Yesterday was the big day for our pal Greg over at Rhymes With Right, but I think we’ll celebrate it properly today, with some killer ‘cue and of course, some well chilled Shiner Bock.
Whaddya say, old friend… can you stand another birthday do? I kinda think so… many, many more.
One of our illustrious Council alumni is also in the news… none other than our good friend David Gerstner, AKA Soccer Dad. David took a bit of a hiatus from blogging for awhile, although he continues to put out his superb Middle East Media samplers on an almost daily basis.
Ah, but the ‘sphere has a lure all it’s own. After getting his feet wet with a couple of great pieces published by Pajamas Media, David let me know he’s back in the game, as a co-blogger/galley slave for Professor Bill Jacobsen over at the superb site Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion.
You can check out his latest piece on LI here. Congrats, David!
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 just 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?
