Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – Plus ça Change Edition

Yes, plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose – the more things change, the more they stay the same.

It’s unlikely, but recent events in Paris might just open some people’s eyes when it comes to Israel and the Middle East. Kudos to Stephen Pastis, who tweeted this 2003 strip to the world yesterday with the message “It applies now as much as ever.”

As Bob Marley once sang, who feels it knows it.

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.

Council News:

We currently have a vacancy on the Watcher’s Council. If you’re interested in being considered for membership in the oldest, most established and most enjoyable blogging group in the ‘sphere, please leave a comment (which won’t be published) with your name, site name and e-mail in the comments section of any article at Joshuapundit.

This week, The Pirate’s Cove, The PoliticalCommentator, Simply Jews and Benjamin Weingarten 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.

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 (mandatory, but of course it 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 on 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?

So, let’s see what we have for you this week….
