ProBlogger's Book ::: Outdated and Overrated!

A few weeks ago I chanced upon ProBlogger's book. There it was. Sitting on the shelf at the Albany Public Library.

The date inside the book is 2008. Light years away in digital time. Nothing against the Pro, but the book sure could use a little updating!

As I skimmed through I found lots of information that is TODAY either
totally incorrect or no longer relevant. Follow the book's advice in 2011 and you'll blog your way into oblivion!

On Monday I received an email from Ana Hoffman. The webmistress is crying the blues - very unhappy over some changes made by Google.

I APPLAUD THE CHANGES! They are sure to piss off the "gurus of blogging" and send them running for cover, tails twixt their legs! Hover and click on the image below and you'll discover what pushed Ana's buttons!

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.
