A Few Thoughts on Blogging...

I've been thinking about how I blog and post comments to other peoples blogs.  I use a lot of exclamation points  for one thing.  Why do I do that?  I think that I want to people to know that I want to be a little humorous, excited or impressed and not sarcastic or a smartypants.  That's the same reason I type lol or  some version of :).  All these little things seem to be rather "goofy" for lack of a better word coming to mind.

Another thing I often do is go back and edit my posts if I see a misspelled word or lack of an apostrophe to show the possessive version of a word.  I don't care to have folks around the globe think I'm illiterate!!! :) lol!!!

What do you think--is this goofy?!!!


  1. Sharon, I do exactly the same thing! I just blogged about exclamation points the other day in fact. I use it for the same reasons you do ... guess there just isn't any other symbol to convey what we want to convey! And every once in a while a typo will slip through, but I go back and re-read mine for errors also. So welcome to the club!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I don't think that is goofy at all sometimes I go back and edit too when I read it for the first time after posting and I'm like oh gosh what was I thinking LOL

  3. Whew! Glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes it's either my fingers are faster than my brain or maybe it's just the opposite and my fingers are flying over the keyboard too fast and I misspell SIMPLE words and have to go back and correct them before too many people see my silly mistakes :). Oh, and look at the smilies and exclamation points I just typed lol!
