Watcher's Council Nominations - 'Scandal? What Scandal?' Edition



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.

This is your weekly magazine of the best in opinion and commentary from around the web..everything you need to know to stay on top of things.

This week's contest is dedicated to Ray Manzarek...a wonderful musician and a sweet soul who finally broke on through to the other side.So long, Ray..RIP:

Council News:

Council alumnus Trevor Loudon of New Zeal has a new book out entitled "The Enemies Within" that focuses on the real details of communists, socialists and radicals now in the US congress. If you've sampled Loudon's blog posts or his previous book, "Barack Obama And the Enemies Within" you know you're in for a great, meticulously sourced read.

 "The Enemies Within" is due out August 20th,and you can pre-order here.

Up For Grabs - There is a vacancy currently available in the Watcher's Council. This is a very special group and a superb opportunity for a blogger to reach a wider audience and showcase their work. If you think you qualify and are interested in applying, leave a comment with a link to your site, your e-mail address (which will remain confidential) and any questions you might have as a comment on any article over at Joshuapundit.

This week, The Pirate's Cove, Right Truth, Maggie's Notebook and SooperMexican took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status with some great 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) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM 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

Simple, no?

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?
