Around The Blogosphere 12 January 2011

Wordless Wednesday, Almost - It is snowing HARD here in Connecticut. 5 AM estimates are that we've gotten about 12 inches of snow already with the possibility of twice that...

Here in New York, I've been up most of the night. Some sort of stomach bug began its attack on my tummy late yesterday afternoon while I was at work. By the time I got home, it was painful - and relentless, lasting through the early hours of the day... and I still feel queasy. I had to stay home from work, something I don't enjoy doing, but I suppose with the nasty weather and all that, well... I'm gonna pop outside for a minute and take a picture... BRB...
OK - people are busy shoveling - not me! I employ a snow removal service. Here's a look at the doppler, as shot off the teevee:
Now here's a bit of a look at some of the more interesting articles I've run across this morning whilst blogging in bed:

How to Use Keywords in Your Headlines and Make Top-Ranking Blog Posts

10 Social Media Apps to Watch in 2011

Here's a helpful hint from blogger that I used in the recent revision of my blog:

The most important content of your blog that catches readers attention should load the quickest. To help you identify which items are taking the longest to load you can use Stopwatch. To use Stopwatch, enter your blog's URL into the text box and click "Start StopWatch". Stopwatch will then open your blog in a frame and will record the time it takes for everything on your blog to load, including images, videos, widgets, etc. Take note of the items that take the longest to load and modify them appropriately using our suggestions.

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.
