Japanese Algebra

When in doubt, print it out!

Sometimes it's best to take a webpage and print it out - make hardcopy - something you can take to the sofa or the bedroom to analyze in a more peaceful analog state of mind!

A young blogger recently contacted me, asking for advice about monetizing her blog. She wrote "this monetisation(sp) makes as much sense to me as Japanese Algerbra(sp)," and she went on to beat herself up for failing to wrap her head around the concept. No fear, dear!

Every now and again you'll see bloggers post their stats and-or earnings online. While I am all for transparency, I think most of us like to play our cards closer to the vest.

Some of my favourite bloggers publish stats and earnings, and in a way the practice does serve to encourage less seasoned bloggers, some of whom are desperate to make a little extra cash in these economically depressed times.

One of them is Ana, whose Traffic Generation Cafe is a great "proving ground" when it comes to blog tweaking and tinkering!

Here's Ana's stats (below)- I went and fetched my blogs stats (farther below) - I was pleasantly surprised: I'm almost on Par with The Cafe - (hover and click on the individual images for larger versions) that tells me that my blog has a pretty solid footing, by golly!

Good for me!

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.
