1. Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is you-er than you. — Be yourself. And be consistent.
2. A person’s a person, no matter how small. — Every connection counts, and people with the least amount of connections often become your most loyal fans.
3. I meant what I said and I said what I meant. — Be true and genuine with your beliefs and posts.
4. So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads. — Keep it short and to the point.
5. From there to here and here to there, funny things are everywhere. — There’s always something entertaining out there to comment on.
6. Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s a great balancing act. — Be extra kind with your words. Stay away from contentious topics.
7. If you keep your eyes open enough, oh, the stuff you will learn! The most wonderful stuff! — Follow interesting people. Join relevant discussions and groups. Engage with your followers.
8. Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple. — If you need help, ask. Your social media connections will help!
9. Will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed! — If you try and try and try some more, there’s almost no way you can fail in social media.
10. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way! — It’s time to start doing! You’ll get to the top if you don’t give up.
