Gentle readers, it’s time for this week’s edition of the Watcher’s Council nominations.

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:

This week, The Pirate’s Cove, Blazing Cat Fur, Simply Jews and The People’s Cube 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….

And remember, every Wednesday the Council has its weekly contest with members nominating two posts each: one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are  cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written  in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it, or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

The Watcher’s Council can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter.  Please, gentle readers, return each Friday, same bat-time, same bat-channel, for the results of this week’s voting.
