Tweaked For 2012

I finally did it!
A brand new 3-column look for my blog to ring in the New Year!

I've always wanted a 3-column blog but could never macgyver the old template the right way. This new "layout" is one offered within Google-Blogger's own system, so there are no image hosting issues or other strange things to worry about.
UPDATE: I found out how to make a proper installation of the StumbleUpon button HERE! Now you can "Stumble" and individual post when you land on that specific post's page (URL).
I simply made a text copy of my old template and isolated each widget and feature I wanted to keep. I did lose a couple of things along the way, like the little "snapshots" feature and the "you might also like" but I may be able to recover them later, if needed...

The strangest thing is the loss of over 180 "Google Friends" who seem to have vaporized...

  3. Even if Google do not look at them as before, my answerd is yes. A blogroll is more simple than to speak about someone on an article as I do in my Revue, everyday ...

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
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.
