via @ThisIsSethsBlog : Avoiding Magical Thinking

Here's an article that's truly a pleasure to share. It transcends all of the nonsense and hoopla marketing ploys the self-annointed "web gurus" will throw your way. And it's powerful message for ANYONE attempting to do ANYTHING.

Hard work is at the root of popular acceptance and recognition in whatever field you're striving to make a mark or have a presence in. Simply click on the image at left to read the full article, or click here to visit the blog where it first appeared. For this post, someone else did the heavy-lifting. Here’s to reblogging!

While this post is basically a re-blog, I'd like YOUR OPINION on re-blogging or reblogging. Tumblr and Vine basically pioneered the process. Some people believe great posts should be shared via whatever means available, be it twitter, facebook or re-blogging. I rarely reblog, unless I really like something. I think reblogging is a great tool for spreading good ideas and great blogs. What do YOU think?

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.
