A Quick Note

In checking visitor statistics, I was pleasantly surprised by this number:

Average Visit Length .......... 4:01

That's pretty darn good! A visitor to this blog spends, on average, about 4 minutes! So, people are reading my articles. Compare that number to about a year ago, when I was getting a good chunk of daily visits from Entrecard droppers:

Average Visit Length .......... 0:22

In retrospect it would seem that the demise of EntreCard was a good thing. I don't see it exactly that way, but what I do know is that at least 25 per cent of the current daily readers of this humble weblog found me via EntreCard! Thank you, all of you, for your continued support. I'm here for you, and for all of you.

I ran across a post today on that mentions a few upcoming events for bloggers: certainly there must be more. If you know of any please leave details and URLs in either comments or fb comments! Thanks!

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.
