Around The Blogosphere 25 March 08

Blogger of the Week: Abdulrahman Warsame

The blog is entitled "No Longer at Ease - On politics, development, journalism; East Africa & Middle East" which Abdurahman co-blogs with Hanna. A Somali born in Saudi Arabia, educated in Egypt and Australia, and currently working for Al Jazeera in Doha, Qatar, as a Senior Analyst in New Media, Warsame shares his thoughts on blogging in his country and the rest of the Arab world. Co-blogger Hanna hails from the U.K. - she is a final year undergraduate Literature student with a fast growing interest in politics, postcolonial writing, forced migration, general theories involving diaspora and human rights (especially that of refugees). They have a MyBlogLog community which I'm proud to say I've joined. I've also added No Longer at Ease to my blogroll.

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.
