I think that I have fallen into the trap of overusing exclamation points. I confess that I am trying to overcome my temptation to add three or more exclamation points to the end of a sentence.
Facebook users are notorious for exclamation over indulgence and I add myself to that list.
"Hi [so and such] you look great!!!!!"
"Falling asleep as I sit at my computer!!!!!!!!"
Even in emails, the exclamation point has been given too much credit.
"Let's do lunch!!!!"
"you are so right!!!!!"
"Craving a cheese enchilada!!!!"
"I love Las Vegas!!!!!"
I'm just over the over use of exclamation points. I may stand alone, however, when you read my post, or review my status on Facebook, and note the periods only and missing exclamation points, it doesn't mean that I am boring and not excited about things. I just refraining, from the over usage of, well, shouting.
