Watcher’s Council Nominations – #Hash Tag Edition

Ann Coulter, Twitter

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:

The Council In Action!

  • Our esteemed colleague Hube shared some great news with us this week. In edition to his fine blog The Colossus Of Rhodey and his membership on the Council, Hube recently landed a job as Assistant Editor of The College Fix, an NRO affiliated website. Council Akbar and a dozen whoo hoos!
  • Elise Ronan at Liberty’s Spirit has a fine new piece up at the Times Of Israel, Mental Health Awareness: Wanted Compassion and Understanding
  • Debra Heine of Nice Deb’s scintillating new piece is up at Breitbart, In Defense Of Hashtag Diplomacy.

    This week, The MidKnight Review, Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion, The Pirate’s Cove and The Mellow Jihadi 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.

    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 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 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?

    *A note on this week’s selections – due to problems with their host server, The Colossus of Rhodey was unable to submit this week, and Rhymes with Right was only able to do so by the lucky chance of finding a separate site that had cut and pasted one of his articles. We regret the omission and look forward to their return next week, as I’m sure all our readers do.

    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". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
