Lazy Sunday Afternoon in the Blogosphere

A verrry lazy laid-back Sunday afternoon! Michelle Malkin has a Sunday open thread happening... commenters are chatting about Swine Flu (Mexiflu), the economy, Ted Kennedy... Are 'open threads' a good idea? How about 'Blog Carnivals'???? Amit Varma, one of the most popular Indian bloggers and winner of several awards for blogging, posts some tips on how to write a successful blog.

If you landed here via search-engine, you might want to start reading from My Home Page! ... The #1 post on this humble weblog Saturday was the one about Shoko Tan, oddball Japanese blogebrity... My post about Internet Explorer 6 was a few hits behind, at #2.

Japan: We will not forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki

I'm getting major hits today for unknown reasons on these older posts:::

Sonia Faleiro has posted Mining for Truth ::: The PM's daughter, Amrit Singh, in today's NYT, on her work in the investigation of prisoners abused in American custody ... Costa Rican writer Felipe Granados recently passed away at the age of 33. Fusil de Chispas [es] is saddened by the loss of the author, who penned such books as Soundtrack.

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.
