Fun with Smilies and …

So you see these fun Smilies around the web and wonder, “Hey – how can I add happy faces, sad faces, eek faces, shock faces, cool faces, etc. faces to my CoolTea Conversations ..??..”

Short answer = easy 🙂

All you have to do is type two or three keys on your keyboard to represent the graphic smiley icon you want to appear when your blog post is displayed and voila – smiley of your choice appears in your post!

e.g., if you want a happy face to appear at end of a paragraph, then end your paragraph with a blank space and type a colon followed by a parentheses -> save -> voila -> :mrgreen: … technically this face s/b -> 🙂

Smilies are fun to use but like many things – best used in moderation and akin to exclamation marks (e.g., too many over states) ….

So you ask, “Hey Chuck, how do I know what letters to type to get a cool face or any other smiley face in my posts?”

Great question – here is official site with letters and corresponding Smiley faces:

Smileys are also known as emoticons and you can read more here ->

ps – Automatically make your links clickable … just type in full url – e.g., h t t p bla bla bla … vs starting with w w w bla bla bla …

thus gotta have fully qualified url -> h t t p : / / -> in order for it to be hot linked automatically …
