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.
Ahhh, summertime is here! It may be just the California guy in me, but there's still something special about the summertime. Yeah, things have changed (and boy, do I remember how it was) but there's still a handful of that summertime Lotus Land dream left if you open up and look for it.
Hey, the weather's gorgeous, school's out, and wherever you are, amidst all the turmoil and angst it's important to take some time to enjoy life and remember that its...well...fun! So don't let you and your heart get too far apart.
This week, Ask Marion, Right Truth, The Pirates Cove and Maggie's Notebook took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some great pieces they submitted to yours truly.
You can, too! Want to make your hit counter happy? Want to have your work featured 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 6PM 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?
So, with all that out of the way, let's see what we have this week....
