The Watcher's Council Hail to the Chiefs Edition
If it's Wednesday that can mean only one thing! It's time for the weekly nominations at the Watcher's Council!
But before we get to the nominations, for the first timers let me explain who and what the Watcher's Council actually is.
The Watcher's Council is a long-standing group of 15 conservative bloggers from around the world and winner of the 2011 Fabulous 50 Blog Award in the category of Best Conservative Blog-Ring.
Each week, first thing Wednesday morning, we the members of the Watcher's Council make known our two articles for public consumption; one of our own (Council) and one from somewhere around the blogosphere (Non-Council) that address issues we feel are particularly timely and important to present.
After a secret ballot among the members, Friday morning the winners in each category are announced and the grand prize, the appreciation of our peers, is awarded! Stay tuned!
