Watcher’s Council Nominations – The Watcher’s Birthday Bash 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 morning.

Council News:

Tom White of VA Right and Fausta of Fausta’s Blog were picked as two of Newsmax’s Top 50 conservative blogs and just check out these write ups:

24. Fausta’s Blog – If you want to keep track of what matters to lovers of liberty in Latin America, it’s Puerto Rican-born Fausta Wertz’s cornucopia of political, economic, and foreign policy information and commentary about south of the border, with a dose of New Jersey state current events thrown in (she has lived in Princeton forever). No surprise hers was the go-to site when President Obama announced plans to normalize relations with Communist Cuba — “No, Cuba is not China. No, you can’t have free markets without free peoples” — but she is also the handiest source for the latest on Colombia’s FARC guerillas or disguised Chinese backing of a proposed Nicaraguan canal.

44. Virginia Right!- As Newsmax’s Joe Schaeffer reported last June, only Virginia Right! editor Tom White delivered “an eerily precise post” predicting the stunning primary defeat of then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor by Dave Brat. White’s blog continues to prove that “all politics is local” isn’t just a catchphrase; the local knowledge of politics is no longer restricted to local bosses and operatives, thanks to Internet-facilitated people power.

Hearty Congrats to both of ’em..Council Akbar!!

This week, The Pirate’s Cove, Gates Of Vienna, Blazing Cat Fur and The Daily Caller 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….

  6. […] A pleasantly busy afternoon enlivened by the fact that I cut my finger while cooking — quite a small cut — and then bled for the next hour. I finally got the bleeding to stop by using a trick the dentist taught me when my children had teeth pulled: Steep a tea bag for a minute or two until the leaves are wet, and then plunk it down on whatever small wound is bleeding. The tannin stops the blood flow. It’s really quite amazing. And on that sanguinary note, here are this week’s Watcher’s Council nominations: […]
