Watchers Wanted

Dafydd ab Hugh has decided to relinguish his position on the Watcher’s Council and, consequently, there’s now an empty seat to fill. If you have a blog, considering applying for it—the current rules are here.

The Watcher’s Council is a great way to find new readers, make a difference, and to punch above your weight class.
