I am Soccer Dad. I am the new Watcher. Welcome.
There have been two previous Watchers. The original and lately Watcher #2. Plus JoshuaPundit helped out with Watching duties for a bit at the end of last year.
The first Watcher created a weekly challenge in which 12 bloggers would submit one of their own articles plus one article from around the web for the consideration of the council. Every week, the 12 council members would vote the best articles of the week.
Watcher #2 started a bit more than a year and a half ago. He lent his technical and design skills to create our new home – plus he donated the cyber real estate for us to operate out of. Many thanks to him for keeping us going and re-energizing the enterprise. But now, (un)fortunately, he has other obligations. (You ask: Obligations other than blogging? I answer: Yes, strange as it may seem, some people have them.) Many thanks to him for all that he did.
Now it’s my turn. I have no fresh new ideas. I have no great technical nor design skills. Deal with it. And read this week’s wonderful submissions.
By the way, if you’re a blogger and you have what it takes, we need a new member (or two). Why don’t you follow the instructions here, and we’ll consider you to be a future council member.
