Introducing Real Southern Rules

Let us start by apologizing for how slow things have been on the site lately. Goodness knows y’all need your “Twanglish Lessons” and profiles of Real Southern Men just to get through these tough times. At least, that’s what we keep telling ourselves.

During this slow period, we’ve had some time to think about what works on the site and what doesn’t. Mainly, we’ve focused on the most popular posts. Apart from the bigger stories, our most popular recurring features are, of course, the “Twanglish Lessons,” “A Real Southern Man Is…” and “Be A Real Southern Man.”

To reflect that, you’ll see that “Twanglish Lessons” is now a top-level menu item on the site. Let nothing come between you and your mastery of the Official Language of the South.

You’ll also notice another new top-level menu item called Real Southern Rules. We realized that sometimes our how-to series, “Be A Real Southern Man,” and our series aimed at defining the characteristics of Southern manliness, “A RSM Is…,” were difficult to differentiate. So over the next few weeks, we’ll be merging the two into our new Rules series of posts.

I could try to tell you that we’re not doing this with the hopes of a book in mind … or to have a good reason to recycle some material. But we all know that wouldn’t be the truth.  There’s a Real Southern Rule for you:

Real Southerners tell the truth …  even when it’s potentially embarrassing.

We’re hoping that this will prove to be as universally popular as Twanglish Lessons. And now all your hints on how to be a real Southerner will be easily accessible … all in one place.

You can thank us with your continued loyalty. And by buying the book that we’re not really hoping to publish. Dang! Broke our own rule already.

  1. Y’all had me at “Twanglish” ~ everything after that has been a bonus. 🙂

  2. I’m late to comment, but I think these are good changes. While I enjoy the posts, I sometimes feel a little left out :(. Real Southern Rules sounds just right! Now the girls can play more, too.

  3. I am a Real Southern Woman and I think we should educate people on some of our sayings and what they really mean! They might think twice when we say, “Bless your heart!” 😉
