Okay, I admit it, I'm a true Texan; it just got into my blood sometime when I was a child, which means I have this exaggerated sense of state pride that only Texans understand and it also means I couldn't resist commenting on this news story.
This morning I had a discussion with a past graduate of mine about blogging and one of the challenges that came up was the writing. Starting a blog is the easy part but keeping it going, and keeping it interesting for your readers is another thing entirely. One of my ideas to my friend was to put your own slant on a new story that your readers may be hearing. And this afternoon a perfect example presented itself.
CNBC released it's list of the Top states for Business 2008. Is your state on the list? Of course I'm proud (and agree!) that Texas is the #1 best state for business. Do you agree (why/why not)? Create a link to the article on your blog and give it your own slant.
