I absolutely loved this. Here are the first three:
- Mind your manners. Social media is still social. Even though we are interacting in a virtual space, the same traditional social rules, laws, and faux pas still apply. If you act like a jerk, don’t expect many friends.
- Tuck in your shirt. How you present yourself is just as important in the virtual world as it is in the real world. Make sure you are always aware of how you appear to others.
- Send a thank you card. People still appreciate being appreciated. It really doesn’t take much to convert an acquaintance to a friend, which will offer exponentially more value. A simple thank you, or any genuinely human interaction of gratitude goes a long way towards this goal.
Occasionally, we Texans have a responsibility to explain our “Texanity” to befuddled out-of-staters.

Ha! I’m going to start using the phrase “Texanity” to describe all the dumb laws Rick Perry wishes he could enforce. Yes, he’s still working on forcing women to listen to a heartbeat and see a sonogram before undergoing an abortion. Never mind the $27 billion state debt and threatened costs at education. We’ve got unborn fetuses to worry about!
OoooOoooOooo!!! I want to reblog this like 10x!! Why is he still Governor? Like seriously. That’s the real Texanity in all of this.
Very Interesting. Maybe Texas officials were planning to use the $269 million to recuperate the funds they’re cutting from our public education system. Hmm, I wonder…Doubt it.
