What's Popular On This Blog?

I really don't have a clue...

If you look in the sidebars you'll see three measurements: one of posts viewed by RSS, one that says "Top Posts" (via PostRank) and another bearing the header "Popular Content" which is a service of Google.

None of them jive with the results I receive through my sitemeter service. So I'm puzzled.

I'll leave them there for now, because they do give readers an opportunity to see other material posted on this humble weblog.

I just got a nice email from someone who said she bookmarked my blog for use as a "portal" to "go through to visit a bunch of interesting sites."

I like that. It makes me feel "functional" ???

Also check out "I Read These" - a place where I list blogs I check in with more frequently.

If your blog is not on that list, please don't be offended! Some of my favourite bloggers don't update regularly like they used to, so I keep track of them them via my Google Reader. That way I can see the moment they've published something.

I'm really glad I updated and added the 3-column template. Any suggestions you readers may have are always welcome!

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.
