Around The Blogosphere 23 March 2015

"It’s not that you have to be a certain kind of person to make a big dream happen. You just have to be the kind of person who decides to do it and then follows through."

Ever get your Alby Mangels on? Just wanna pack up and go... travel around or maybe start a new life someplace else? This gal did! She told my friend Jessica: "It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of pieces that need to fall into place for a big change to happen. Your to-do list can start to feel impossible and suffocating. Focus on breaking it into the smallest chunks that you can and just tackle one at a time. It’s incredible how much comes together at the last minute, so just take one step after another and keep breathing." Read more »

PS - I've made a few spring changes here on the blog. I've moved up the "Life-Health-Money" bloglist in the right sidebar and added three new blogs, including Jessica's and Sarah's. This makes it easier for both me and YOU to check-in and see what's hapening on these great weblogs!

Can Artists Earn a Living in the Age of Social Media? YES THEY CAN! Not only can artists live off their work, but the Internet can actually be a lifeline for them in today's increasingly competitive marketplace. The blog RamGon (third newly added to the "Life-Health-Money" category) looks into opportunities for painters in social media and, more importantly, into how the medium can help artists to publicize and market their work.

HAPPENING ON TWITTER ::: The "big news" in the U.S. is that in the wee wee hours of Monday morning, Ted Cruz confirmed on Twitter that he will run for president, making him the first official candidate to toss his hat in the ring, and the first (correct me if I'm wrong) to announce on social media.

At the launching of MéxicoLeaks, a platform that collects leaked information about possible corruption, journalist Carmen Aristegui and her research team declared that they would back the project.

This led MVS Radio, their employer, to fire Aristegui's collaborators, Daniel Lizarraga and Iriving Huerta, for supposedly compromising the company name.

In response, Aristegui demanded that the radio station rehire Lizarraga and Huerta, after which the company let her go as well.

That led to an outcry of support from followers on Twitter: Read more »

GOOGLE has made a point of making a 'hit' out of Emmy Noether. Though you may never have heard of her until now, the powers that be tell us Emmy Noether was one of the most brilliant and important mathematicians of the 20th century. They credit her with altering the course of modern physics.

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.
