That time of year is here again and all of us here at the Watcher’s Council wish you and yours a simply wonderful Thanksgiving… with the exception of the turkey-in-chief pictured above.
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 here on Friday.
This week’s contest is dedicated to that eminent Marxist, Harpo… honk, honk!
First and foremost, hearty congrats to our fellow Council mate Trevor Loudon of New Zeal for successfully sneaking into America, wowing the natives with a whirlwind book tour, scoring radio interviews and rave reviews from the likes of Glenn Beck and sending his new book Barack Obama And The Enemies Within to #87 on Amazon! Well done, bro!
This week, Liberty’s Spirit, Monkey In The Middle, Maggie’s Notebook, Tundra Tabloids and Capitalist Preservation took advantage of my generous offer of link whorage and earned honorable mention status.
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.
Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title, a link to the piece you want considered, along with an e-mail address (which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order 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.
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?
