Around The Blogosphere 30 Sept 10

Today, across the blogosphere, the loading time for many blogs increased significantly! HINT: They all did the same thing I did today. Can you guess what it is and did you notice how quickly this blog loaded today?

Now, THIS REALLY SUCKS! Shame on you, Google!

Media Moment: “Nowhere Boy” Premieres in the U.S. This article is everything a quality blog post should be! Ms. Seckler's exquisitely detailed and linked presentation is of the highest quality. How would I compare her blog to mine? Hmmm... her blog is like a shiny, pretty new copy of a high-end magazine. Mine is more like an artist's moleskine notebook...

Exploring Blog Monetization - Often, I've been asked how I make money blogging. My typical response is that I don't, directly.

Defacebook - With all the noise over the new Facebook movie, I thought you might like to see this!

While it now dominates the online calling space, it needs to be present where users are now moving, such as Facebook. And for Facebook, this is also helpful to its international push, making it more appealing globally since Skype is much more popular outside the U.S. It will be interesting to see if both cross-integrate into their popular mobile apps too."

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.
