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.
Two news items…first, the Council received an award from none other than Doug Ross @ Journal’s 2010 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards as the best best blogging group in the ‘sphere. Congrats to our members and a high five to Larwyn’s Links!
Also, starting with this edition,I’m re-instituting our Honorable Mentions category. 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 e-mail me a link at email@example.com with the subject heading ‘Honorable mention’ no later than Monday 6PM PST to be considered for our honorable mention category, and return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week.
The Council doesn’t vote on a winner in Honorable mentions, but it is a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members.This week, The Political Commentator took advantage of my generous offer and earned honorable mention status.
