Watcher’s Council Nominations: Low Budget 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.

This week’s Council contest is dedicated to Rep. Paul Ryan

Council News:

Our own Bookworm’s new E-book, The Bookworm Turns: A Secret Conservative In Liberal Land is finally out, and is even better than I imagined it would be. Available at Amazon.

This week, Restoring Honor Starts Here, Monkey In The Middle and Maggie’s Notebook 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 e-mail me a link at [email protected] 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.

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 this week….and don’t forget to tune in Thursday for this week’s Head to Head!
