Interested in #blogging? Why not download a chapter for free?

Why indeed! 

The title of this blog post was sent across twiter by one of those blogging "guru" types.

You may not even want to read the rest of this post! Just click on the image to the left and you will have FREE FULL 24/7 ACCESS to my award-winning series, "The Blogging Class."

So I clicked though the link on twitter - it's a blog of stuff that wouldn't really interest the "I wannabea" blogger... but if you look closely, up in the top right corner, there's an option to "donwload the first chapter of my blogging book for free." (Didn't see any reference to a "learn to drink water" or "how to watch tv"pdf - *joke*)

Of course there is a catch - hoping that your impulsiveness will lead to your giving away your email address... for future marketing solicitations, of course - and that information will be sold and resold for years to come!

Thank You

Thank you for subscribing!

WAIT, WHAT? I subscribed to something?

It continues: Please check your email to confirm your subscription. Download the first chapter of the hot selling book here:  (url) To download you will need the password provided in your confirmation email. Alternatively, you can order your full copy of the eBook by clicking here.

WAIT A MINNNIT! When you click that "here" above - be sure to have the volume turned down because you will be blasted by a dude "are you ready to make money" --- that's where I hit the kill switch!

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.
