Around The Blogosphere 16 August 07

And the blog of the day is... One Man's blog! I like the content and the neat, clean design. If I ever had to rebuild a blog from scratch, this would certainly be one of my inspirations! And that handsome fella who writes the blog looks a little bit like me! Lucky him!

Culture Shiok writes about the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival “14th day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar is when the gates of hell open and the dead will again walk among the living.” The blogger describes how the relatives of departed people try to appease the souls.

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.
