Tweet, Bookmark, Digg and Print!

Blogger Onibalusi Bamidele has come a long way in a short time ::: he has written a post every serious blogger should read and subsequently tweet, bookmark and print! I have a conflict with his tip #7, Only Get High Quality Traffic: I intend to continue networking via Entrecard, which makes it difficult to keep my bounce rate low, just because of the nature of the "Entrecard beast." I am WONDERING... if I cut down on my dropping ECs and only interact with other bloggers who show an interest in my blog, would that eliminate the bounce problem? (I know the numbers of credits others would need to advertise on my blog would drop dramatically! [LOL])

Onibalusi's #1 rule is to keep the load time of your blog as fast as you can! I would NOT recommend adding anything like CommentLuv, Disqus or Intense Debate. Why? You'll lose every single dial-up (and some mobile) readers! These features will EVENTUALLY load, but dial-uppers have better things to do than to wait 15 minutes for your blog's comments to load! FIND A BETTER WAY!

Thank-you to everyone who has promoted my blog post in memory of blogger "Explorer Kitten" - the murder of Karen Woo is unthinkable - a needless death, a great waste of talent. RIP!

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.
