!!!!! I have a problem !!!!!

The first step is admitting you have a problem! I confess to you all-I am addicted to using exclamation points! I use them all over my blog posts, e-mails and text messages. The funny thing is I am not that animated in real life. I don't know why, if someone asks me to go to lunch over text I feel the need to text-SURE! I could just say-sure that would be great. Now I feel like it's rude to not use them, but then when I read the text back I see that I have used one after every sentence!!! I have now joined EA (Exclamations Anonymous)-okay I made that up, but I am hoping there are other exclamation junkies out there to0, and it is not just me!

Here is my goal-to drastically reduce the amount of exclamtion points in my daily messaging-unless it's about new shoes because that IS exciting!!! Sorry, I just have to get out a few more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband called me out on this and now I am going to try "up" my writing skills. So for all you exclamation abusers out there-let's do this!!!


  1. ha, i think it is endearing. and it's hard to convey emotion through text without some punctuation. i think everyone is a little guilty of it.(!)

  2. I have this problem also. It's because it's to hard to emote through texts and type. Let me know if you come up with a solution so I can adapt it :)

  3. Yep...I've got the problem too...and have been aware of this. But I don't only overuse the exclamation point, but I use ... and :) all the time too! I've never used lol or similar abbreviations...but the smiley face and exclamation and dots make a text have character and emit the intentions of the author! In a world of so many texts and fewer phone calls, they are acceptable in my book:)!!!!! ;) ha ha ha!

  4. guilty!! i totally have that problem. I also feel now that i've done it so much i feel like i'm being rude if i don't! haha
