Sorry for the Smileys - But Not Really. Really?

Sorry for the Smileys - But Not Really. Really?

Okay, true confessions time. I have a habit.

It’s not a bad habit. Or a good one. Necessarily.

Just a habit.

I like smileys.

And I like to use them. Especially when I’m commenting upon posts. What with the fabulous way we are set up here at Persona Paper, those colons and half paras turn into golden smiles that dot my comments all OVER the place as I

...traipse around this new paper place.

So I want to say I’m sorry. I want to. But I can’t stop smiling. I love it here already and the smileys help me share that.

At least I’m controlling it for the most part in my posts. MOSTLY because I have to re-enter those once I’ve carried over from my Mac program and also because mentioned not going insane with them in posts when he wrote his piece about the implementation of emoticons . Plus, I do try to retain some sort of writer professionalism, even though we have all these fun gadgets to play with - YAY!

So, I guess I’ll keep on smiling, at most, in comments. If it starts to bug you too much, let me know. I’ll see what I can do about that ;)

#Dawnwriter , I included the link to 's post about them, in this post. right above there, you'll see it :) Though I will say, I've had some trouble with some of them (I blame the user, not the site, lol). Good luck to you :)

I do have a question, since I tagged here...I can't seem to get the color to change on my posts. I thought maybe that was non-functioning for the moment (heard a rumor...) but then earlier I saw a lovely blue on someone's post. Any quick suggestions? Forgive me asking here...just spent a time noodling around with it and couldn't make it work...

No need to say sorry if you'd do that to me. I like smileys all over somewhere I am reading as they make me smile and elevate my mood. I have a habit of laughing in comments too much like "hahahaha!". Like really every time I would comment on something it always has to end with a hahaha! It comes involuntarily every time I would express my thoughts. I'll try not to do it at times, but well. I can't. HAHAHA!

You shouldn't apologize. A happy face can never go wrong. :)
