Blogging Rules

We invite all Advocate readers to start their own blog and add their voice to a constructive community conversation. For technical assistance on starting a blog, please contact digital editor via email at Thomas Martinez or 361-580-6519.

We ask all bloggers to follow our community standards for commenting.

  • Transparency. Your full name is required.
  • Keep it Clean. Please avoid obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist or sexually oriented language.
  • Don't Threaten. Threats of harming another person will not be tolerated.
  • Be Truthful. Don't knowingly lie about anyone or anything.
  • Be Nice. No racism, sexism or any sort of -ism that is degrading to another person.
  • Be Proactive. Use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know of abusive posts.
  • Share with Us. We'd love to hear eyewitness accounts, the history behind an article. And receive photos, videos of what you see.

  • Don’t be a troll. Don’t post inflammatory or off-topic messages, or personal attacks.

All those posting and blogging are solely responsible for what they post.
