One World Media Awards 2007 - Winners

Holy Blog, Batman! Talk about a SPIFFY blog... Michelle Malkin has changed platforms and rolled out a whole new presentation. There's a lot going on, but it all loads up easy in my various browsers and OS's! Plus, MM has returned her photo, updated, to the mix. (Of course I couldn't resist grabbing the pic and splashing it here!)

Michelle Knisley of Greetings from Kiev attended Elton John’s AIDS awareness concert, along with approximately 200,000 other people. Before the concert, she happened to watch a TV clip about the orphanage she used to work at and recognized two girls with AIDS she once played with... Ukrainiana writes about Ukraine’s horrifying AIDS stats.

Somebody hasn't been keeping up his blog: "I have to walk 15 minutes from home to use a cybercafe. And after I post, I have to comment on 4 or so blogs just to get a comment on that post. My site stats are a lie because 80% of my "readers" are actually surfers on blog exchanges, who only stick around for the required 30 seconds. No wonder I haven't been motivated to post much lately. Well today I looked at the number of posts for June and realized that I only posted 4 for the month, and today's the 14! That and today's date made me renew my commitment to blogging."

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.

IMPORTANT:

Your comment will appear after you have made your donation.
