I just read that no one should use more that 3 exclamation marks in their lifetime. I cannot write a blog entry without a few! And, what about my first favorite, the elipse... Am I limited on those also?
I tend to be dramatic... Maybe I learned that in order to be attended to, one had to make a STATEMENT! I gesture, too. Who would've guessed?! And, I usually screw my face up to emphasize my points...!!!
Is it wrong? In the past I would have attempted to dial it back a notch or two, but no more. As Popeye so wisely put it, "I yam what I yam." Take it or leave it. My goal is to do no harm, but I don't think that the personality will change substantially going forward.
