Around The Blogosphere 24 July 07

Here's a cute little blog you're sure to enjoy: even if you don't grasp the language the pictures are interesting! Click on the pick for some real Balderdash!

I thought it might be a nice idea to feature a blogger with a photo or screenshot with every new "Around the Blogosphere" post. So check out "Balderdash" above! Even though my blog has vanished from Technorati, I'm still able to pull some data, such as linking blogs. So, I've added a link at the bottom of every post that "finds" other websites reacting to the individual post. It's a tool, to be used along with the blogspot "Links" link, to gauge reaction and see who might be linking back to me. Tools are a good thing, especially when you use a variety. That way, if one service goes down or goes out of business, you've got "backup" already installed on your blog. I'm also testing "bumpzee" which is similar to "MyBlogLog" and will hopefully give me a little more insight into other blogs and bloggers.

French rapper / blogger Gen-Si asks Mes Vidéos préférées et toi quelles sont les tiennes ? My favourite videos and you, what’s yours? Blogders, show Gen-Si some love and tell her what your favourite Soul or Rap video is!

From videos to politics---Liz Benjamin: "Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno's staff is keeping him away from the media at the moment. He has no public schedule and is not doing any interviews.

When Bruno does choose to go public, it's going to be a big story, which means Troopergate will be kept alive for yet another day - no doubt much to the chargin of Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

Bruno's office just issued the following statement..."

Fred LeBrun: "Well, doesn't Attorney General Andrew Cuomo know how to throw a 50-pound skunk into the parlor?"

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.

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.
