Watcher’s Council Nominations – State Of Disunion Edition

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council (if having link problems go HERE) , 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 contest is dedicated to Dr. Benjamin Carson for not just speaking truth to power, but actually doing it within spitting distance:

Council News:

First off, a correction. It was pointed out to me that I inadvertently left off a couple of my fellow Council members who made the list of top 200 Conservative blogs last week… namely VA Right and The Political Commentator. Mea Culpa… that’s what I get for relying on second hand and not doing the work myself!

This week, Ask Marion, The Pirate’s Cove, Right Reason and Wolf Howling took advantage of my generous offer of linkage and earned honorable mention status with some great pieces.

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 and 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?

So, let’s see what we have this week…

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
