Around The Blogosphere 09 August 08

Blogger of the Week: Moagie

I recently added a link to my MySpace page on this blog. MySpace bills itself as "a place for friends." But it and other social networking sites are becoming a place for enemies too. ..::More from the L.A. Times Blog::..

If you're reaching me thru a tweet or c-box or an RSS reader, I have posted elsewhere an article on the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. Here's ThE_LiNk.

For no apparent reason, people are having trouble locating the post I recently wrote about "White Beyonce"... LooK here! (Maybe because I used "é" instead of "e"???)

I've also heard that sometimes feedburner won't suck up a post if it contains another language (not good, because in the past I've uploaded full or posts partially containing French, Spanish and Portugese languages as well as Chinese language and characters!) Have you had that problem intermixing languages?

Naughty, Naughty! Do the Nasty (via Ambiome) : goin' Downtown w/Peaches... risqué material always attracts hits on any blog or website. Matter of fact, search engines sometimes conclude that a totally innocent post has immoral overtones. well, they're just bots! Some blog titles can also be deliberately misleading, like "All eyes on sizzling Bipasha hot scne of nude which pic here" which is not as XXX as it might have you believe! It's not even "X" for that matter!

I've been asked when I'll be updating the "Hottest Blogger Babes" list. Be patient! Not until December! Meantime, checkout a Tila Tequila blog article posted on HotBollywoodCelebrity's blogspot.

BlogNotes: I've been working behind the scenes, tidying up code, updating links, etc. If anybody wants to exchange links plz send email by clicking on my pic in the sidebar.

Tags: Usually I insert Technorati and / or IceRocket tags right about here. What do YOU think? What's YOUR take on "tags"??? Some of my readers have complained that on certain browsers, the JigLu tag feature I also use adds extra links that make my posts "overlinked" --- any other problems?

  1. If you log on to Jiglu and choose the 'Change how my widget looks' link then you can set how many links you want Jiglu to add to your posts.

    We're about to improve this further so the links are better spread throughout people's posts - hopefully we'll go live with that later this week. Any suggestions on how we can make Jiglu better for bloggers are always welcomed!

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.
