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 posts in each category, with the results appearing on Friday morning.
The Council In Action!!
- The multi-talented Tom White over at Virginia Right! has a brand new song up at YouTube, ‘The Eric Cantor Blues.’ Tasty!
- Debra Heine at Nice Deb has a great piece over at Breitbart giving us the low down on the latest doings of the Tea Party Express with Tea Party Express Launches Ninth National Bus Tour.
- Yours truly at Joshuapundit has a new piece up at the Times of Israel on Mahmoud Abbas and his threat to dissolve the Palestinian Authority if all his demands aren’t met, Farewell To Abbas And The PA? Good Riddance.
This week, The MidKnight Review, Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion, Jewish American Patriots, Gulag Bound and The Pirate’s Cove 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 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 that week when it comes out Wednesday morning.
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?
