Blog Fatigue

No, I'm not suffering from it. But I know YOU certainly must be. There's such a glut of either ridiculous or ridiculously outdated "advice" out there directed toward bloggers and their blogs, it makes me wonder why anyone bothers rehashing the same old tired crap we've read over and over again for years. If you are a blogger, just blog! Do your own thing! Forget about Google and all the SEO and "blogging secrets." Be original 99% of the time: stay away from anything that may be copyright protected. Create and Innovate! Just type your stuff and proof it and hit "publish." If your blog is going to be popular, so shall it be. Forcing it down people's throats won't help.

Having typed that, be advised I am conducting a few "traffic attraction" experiments, which should be interesting! If you notice anything odd appearing on this humble weblog, just say to yourself "it's an experiment."

By the way, if you are worried about visuals for your blog, try FreeFoto.com or Foter.com - no royalties to pay, no copyrights (theoretically) to worry about infringing on.

The weekend for me proved to be very analog - I hardly had time for any online activities, and when I did, they were brief. I did notice Hoopscritic.com founder Brian Geltzeiler tweeted Sunday that fired Rutgers coach Mike Rice was coaching hoop for 7th grade girls. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at life and at the way things turn out!

As you see, nothing uploaded here over the weekend as I was busy in the City - I did manage to post a couple items to my mobile blog, but didn't arrive back in Albany until almost 11pm Sunday night.

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.
