Around The Blogsophere, Weekend Edition 14 March 15

"Around the Blogosphere" was a daily feature on my blog during about the mid 2000's - these days I don't have the time I used to to check out a lot of other blogs and usually when I find something cool, I share it via twitter or weibo. While I can't promise I'll put one out every weekend, I will post "Weekend Edition" from time to time. These are some of the blog posts I ran across during the week that I found particularly interesting, and i hope you do too!

As the anniversary of 19-year-old Camilla Duishebaeva's murder approaches, many believe the investigation has been deliberately impeded.

And when all the websites are the same, they're all going to go down in flames eventually. Thanks, Obama.

Mommybloggers: The idea of praising young children has become a trending topic in the news recently. Some feel that it’s a good idea to tell kids how great they’re doing to help motivate them to become better at a task. But others argue that praising a child could backfire and lead to failure in the long run.

Daddybloggers turn! Scarring my 6 year old son for life. A Walking Dead Dad fail story. New blog post.

"I guess people have been waiting for my response after The Big Gushcloud Exposé. Most of this blog entry was written weeks ago. I just didn't know if I should post it so it just sat in draft form."

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.
