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.
This week’s contest is dedicated to the men and women of the IDF…
The Council In Action!!
* Dave ‘Hube’ Huber of The Colossus Of Rhodey scored this week with a great piece at the College Fix, REPORT: Hillary Clinton Raked In Nearly $2 Million in Campus Speaking Fees.
* And Debra Heine, our own Nice Deb, has an excellent take down of our absentee president up at Breitbart, Bad Optics No Deterrent To An Imperial President Who Refuses to Visit Border #ComeAndSeeIt.
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 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?
