Watcher's Council Nominations - Inaugural 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 week's contest is dedicated to Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu, for his recent  election victory.

Council News:

First off, a bouquet of flowers  to our pal Paula. Get well soon, M'Dear!

Second, it's transition time.  Our Esteemed Council Member Sara from The Independent Sentinel is unfortunately leaving The Watcher's Council to concentrate on other endeavors.

We've all greatly enjoyed having her with us, and no doubt you'll see her from time to time as a non-Council nominee, an honorable mention or weighing in on our weekly forum on Monday mornings.

But yes, that also means that there's now a seat available on the Watcher's Council up for grabs!

If you're interested,  think  you qualify or want to find out more about what's involved in being part of the longest established  blogging group of its kind, simply leave a comment with site URL and  your e-mail address (which won't be published) on any article over at Joshuapundit.

These don't come up all that often and when they do they usually fill up quickly, so don't snooze.

This week, Ask Marion, The Pirate's Cove, and Maggie's Notebook took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and 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.

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 co0mes 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?

So, let's see what we have this week....

Hi Rob

I would be very interested in the Watcher's council place. my name is mike and I live in Sderot, I write as MC in Sderot usually for Gov but once on your own JoshuaPundit.

I have not got my own blog yet but I have the URL ( which I am getting going on my own server here in Sderot.

At the moment I write on things with a CJ flavour, but I am well read and can expand....

I can add an international flavour to the Watcher's council as I am Israeli of UK extraction which by which I would hope to add to the council perspective.
