exclamation marks!


i just thought, 'maybe all sentences on my blog should have exclamation marks at the end of them from now on!' exclamation marks have changed in 'meaning' a bit, maybe! they just look kind of funny and sarcastic to me now! i don't know if this is a good idea! is this a good idea! how long would this be funny for! just a couple of days! or would seeing every post from now on, for like the next two years or something -- including serious/dull 'news updates' etc. -- all with exclamation marks at the end of every sentence, be something funny on a 'grander scale'! i could become 'mister exclamation mark' maybe! i feel like this blog post is going to make me cringe in under an hour and i will have a giant urge to delete it but there will probably be a comment on it by that point which will stop me deleting it due to feeling bad about also deleting someone else's comment!

is this a good idea!
am i making a fool of myself!
no one cares probably!

I over use exclamation marks. I notice myself doing it, but continue regardless. I want to spell it exclaimation marks, it makes more sense that way. Exclaim, not ex clam. See?

thats the problem with the shock of exclamation marks - they wear off after over use and just become irritating. like someone kissing you repeatedly on the cheek - nice at first but then when your face starts to get wet it gets annoying.

and no-one likes a wet face.

this post was ok, but it would've benefited from less exclamation marks.

Sometimes less is more i think that applies here.
