The Last Blog Post

No longer considered clever and not worth internetter’s time when Facebook is king, everybody has a YouTube channel and one can get a quick information fix with a mere glance at a tweet or an instagram post, the blog could be on par with the Pony Express as an entity that was spectacularly useful for a relatively short period of time.

Today’s doses of information hit the public with targeted squirts in real time. Even the U.S. president has embraced social media via twitter in sending his observations directly to Americans minus the various filters and channels that were employed by officials in the past.

So here it is and so shall it remain until powers that be unplug or wipe or destroy the servers that give it a seemingly everlasting electronic life.

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.
