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.
The Council In Action
- Debra Heine from Nice Deb has a great new piece over at Breitbart concerning Baghdad Jay Carney’s lies on the VA scandal, American Legion Official Slams Jay Carney’s VA Distortions: WH Spin ‘Disingenuous.’
- Rob Miller at Joshuapundit has a new piece up at the Times of Israel, What ‘Nakba Day’ Really Means – And Why Israel And The World Should Prohibit it. If you’ve ever wondered exactly what ‘Nakba Day’ is and what it really means, this will tell you.
This week, Yourish.com, The Pirate’s Cove, Maggie’s Notebook and Jewish American Patriots 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
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?
