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.

I don’t know where the expression that I used in my headline came from but from what I found it originated in “England, from around the year 1608, from a play called The Christmas Prince: … Laugh on laugh on my friend. He laugheth best that laugheth to the end.”

The South Texas heat is already doing me in! Our oldest grandchild (also oldest granddaughter), Tal, decided she wanted a little “shopping time” with her Tyta and some help picking out a bathing suit.
