I am not trying to rain on anyone's bloggy parade, but I have to bring this issue to light. Because the English teacher that lives inside me and talks to me demands it.
I am sure you are familiar with this: !
Right, it's an exclamation point. And it's supposed to be used to show excitement, incredulity, a discharge of tension, an interjection.
It's not to be used after! every! sentence!
Can you imagine if people spoke this way in real life?
Me: Hi there. Are you new here?
Person: Yes! I am new here!
Me: (looking nervous) Oh. That's nice. I'm JulieMom. What's your name?
Person: (crazed look in her eye) My name is Joniferna! Joniferna Rublestein!
Me: (wincing from the volume) You like your name, don't you?
Person: Actually, it's kinda hard to spell! Do you know what I mean!
Me: (looking for way to escape) Yeah. I gotta run away from you now. Bye.
Person: Bye! That's ok! This happens to me a lot!
See what I mean? That's just crazy. Unless you are 100% excited about every! word! you! say! You should really use periods sometimes. Or go out on a limb and use a question mark. Really! You'll be surprised how your grammatical existence opens up when you've put to use all those little punctuation marks God has given us.
And the rest of us can stop covering our ears.
