As you may or may not already be aware, members of the Watcher's Council hold a vote every week on what we consider to be the most link-worthy pieces of writing around... though I don't actually vote unless there happens to be a tie, I do get to choose two of the non-council nominations for each vote held. When I choose two blogs to nominate for next week's vote, I will limit myself to considering those who do the following:

You must make a post containing 4 required links -- your qualification post must link to the most recent winning council post, the most recent winning non-council post, the results of the latest vote, and that vote's posting of the nominees.

Then send me an email with "LINK WHORAGE" as the subject and include a link to the post you want me to consider nominating... also, please include a link to your post required by the previous step.

Please follow the previous two steps before Tuesday's nomination deadline of 8 PM, Eastern Standard Time.
I will look at all the submissions and then nominate the two posts that I like the most. When I post the full list of nominations, I'll also list below them up to ten more submitted posts that I feel are the most deserving of an honorable mention... this list of ten extra posts can't be voted on by council members, but it should help you to garner some attention.

I made the same offer last week, but not many bloggers took me up on it. Keep in mind... if you are only one of a dozen (or fewer) people who follow the instructions above, then you are pretty much guaranteed an honorable mention at the very least. As usual, I will be reposting this announcement on a weekly basis.

Update: To make things easier on yourself, just go ahead and copy the HTML code from this box when making your qualification post.
