Manners & More from Around the Web (Week 6)

Manners and More from Around the Web Week Six





















By: Maralee McKee, Manners Mentor

A weekly curation of links from around the web that I love and think you will too. You’ll find manners and etiquette resources along with other helpful, interesting, and inspiring posts to delight and inform. Enjoy!




  • Does your to-do list seem to overwhelm you some days? With all our fancy journals and apps, shouldn’t managing our time get easier instead of harder? What if we followed a 100-year-old proven technique instead of today’s lastest-greatest fad? This simple method was working when you couldn’t text someone for an instant answer. Yet still, people managed to build the first great skyscrapers, invent the automobile, and even design the zipper (in 1913). A lot got done using this method, so there must be something to it.




A Special Note About the Election

On Tuesday the citizens of the United States will elect a new president. If current polls hold true, and if past elections are any example, about half of us will have voted for the candidate who wins. The other half of us will have four years of living under a president we didn’t want to see elected.

If your candidate wins, no gloating. You’re better than that. If your candidate loses, no fears. You’re stronger than that.

Instead, if your candidate wins, pray for the new president every day. It’s the hardest job in the world. He or she is going to need your prayers. If your candidate doesn’t win, still pray for the president every day, because if you believe in prayer, you know it can move mountains, even if that mountain is named Clinton or Trump.

God bless America!

About Maralee McKee

Maralee McKee is the founder of Manners Mentor. With her best-friend style, sense of humor, and knack for updating etiquette to meet our modern sensibilities, she has been referred to as "Sandra Bullock meets Emily Post!" Maralee shows you how to become the best version of yourself. No fluff. No pretense. Just you at your authentic best! The person you were always meant to be! Maralee is a native and life-long resident of Orlando. Before entering the etiquette arena, she worked in management and ministry. She's proud to be Kent's wife and Marc and Corbet's mom. She hates laundry, and loves quality tea, London, and Savannah, Southern cooking, dressing up and dressing down, and Miss Lilly the Wonder Sheltie. You can find her picture if you scroll to the footer of this page. Isn't she the cutest dog ever?!!! PS: Because everyone always asks her, "What's your etiquette pet peeve?" It's people who talk on their phones in public restrooms. The person on the other end of the phone must wonder, "What's that noise. It sounds, it couldn't be." Plus, everyone else in the bathroom is held hostage to a one-sided conversation usually shouted to try and cover up the noises. It would be comical if it weren't plain wrong on many levels. ;)
