I need a reminder, emoticons are NOT punctuation! I think we could all use this reminder every now and then. It’s ok when you are with friends but not when writing a paper for work or school (or on your blog). I also need to use less !!! and … and ❤ s What happened to using words to convey your emotions? This is my new goal, to use less emoticons. Not sure I will start today though…. Maybe I will start tomorrow ; )
