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.
We note with regret the departure of our dear friend Maggie of Maggie’s Notebook, who resigned her seat on the Council to concentrate on other matters. We all wish her well and will miss her, even though she will continues to be a valued part of the Council community.
But we do have some good news. Replacing Maggie in our stellar line up is The Daley Gator, who makes his debut this week. And if you haven’t previously had the pleasure of reading him, you’re in for a real treat.
This week, The Pirate’s Cove, Blazing Cat Fur and Life News 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 (mandatory, but of course it 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 on 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?
