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. Council News: This week, Ask Marion, Right Truth, and The Pirate's Cove took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some excellent pieces. 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. Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won't be published)anywhere 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 when it comes out Wednesday morning.
