1) Don't use smiley faces. Seriously if you've ever gotten an e-mail from me, they're LACED with smileys. So damn annoying, I know. (especially when the smiley face comes through a friend's e-mail as a "J"...took months for her to figure out why I had randomly thrown the letter J in throughout my entire e-mail!). (you should know that I'm ACTIVELY not using smiley faces and already in the past 2 posts have deleted quite a few before posting...)
2) Stop writing novels. I'm a wordy person, this I know. I'm trying not to write short stories for each post. Perhaps I'll have to adopt the bullet format in future posts to keep words concise...and to keep readers - no one wants a 7,500 blog post to peruse through in the a.m.
3) Write like I talk. I like to think I'm somewhat of an entertaining person when I talk - so I'm aiming to write more like I talk and less how I think people want the words to sound. Less deep intense, more funny & real.
If you see a 9,000 word vocab & emotion laced e-mail with a buttload of smiley faces - you know I've lost track of my blog goals.
