What You Need May (or may not) Be In The Feed

On three of the many blogs I regularly read, the bloggers routinely publish their earnings online.

If not for RSS, I wouldn't even know about these earnings ! Two of these blogs have landing pages that are way too busy - too much stuff going on - one even has a black background with white text - SMALL white text that is really difficult to read.

Another blog wrote a very nice article about me - that DID NOT appear on RSS! The I noticed several of their posts rarely make it to RSS... very puzzling indeed...

Some of my own blog posts fail to appear on RSS from time to time, unless I give them a gentle "push"...

My own twitter feed is sometimes not picking up new blog posts - that too seems to be hit and miss.

MORAL OF THE POST ::: experiment with RSS and feeds, but do not solely rely on any one feedreader or system. Make certain you don't miss anything of importance to you!

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.
