Blog Spotlight ::: WATCH THESE 2

Two of my favourite bloggers, one local, one international, have ventured into new territories... how do you suppose they'll fare? Quite well, if you ask me!

XiaXue goes tumblr ::: if blogging had a "high-priestess" it would be Wendy Cheng. Someone once referred to Wendy as "Blogging's Cleopatra." You can't help but love (or in some cases, love to hate) Little Ms Pink! Thrust into the spotlight when her schoolgal blog out of Sinagpore was featured by the blogger platform, Wendy embraced success and was spirited away in a digital moment that morphed into a fairy-tale come true. (If you've been following my blog for the last several years, you KNOW what I'm talking about!) Wendy was once of the first bloggers I came across in my own journey through the blogosphere. She is upfront, honest, kind to those who respect her, and bad news for those who don't.

Xiaxue has NOT abandoned her main blog. She's merely enhancing the internet experience via tumblr. Welcome to tumblr, Wendy!
Sensing that the moment is right to fry bigger fish, Albany Citizen One has taken a great leap and become NEW YORK CITIZEN ONE. The local blogger who showed the Albany Times union where the local news is kicks her blog up more notches than Emeril may care to count. With the "fall season" just around the corner, the timing could not be better! Go get 'em, #1!

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.
