Bloganuary: Emoji’s

What emoji(s) do you like to use?

I committed to writing a blog post in ‘Bloganuary’ everyday for a month. But some of these prompts…

I only recently started using emoji’s, like maybe two weeks ago (true story). They are not readily available on my computer keyboard without hand acrobatics and changing menus on my smart phone is too troublesome. And finding the right one — it was only yesterday that I figured out there’s a search bar!

Favorite emoji’s?

Well, because I write so many comments on YouTube this little guy is, maybe, my favorite. ๐ŸคคYou get it by typing ็พŽๅ‘ณใ—ใใ† (and as I just found out “delicious” brings it up, too).

I’m really unclear what these various smiling emojis represent, only that I do feel a tonal difference I can’t justify. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I really have no idea what what this guy means. ๐Ÿ˜… I kinda think he’s breaking a sweat and the description reads “grinning face with sweat” as if smiling makes you sweat? Like the peach ๐Ÿ‘I don’t really get it — and on this topic, it took me way too long to figure out ๐Ÿ†. And how do you use ๐Ÿ† in a sentence? Is it the adjective, subject or predicate? I really don’t know.

On YouTube people leave sentences composed only of emojis and I’ve no idea if it’s a complement or an insult. Google Translate is no help and if Google can’t translate it, does it really have a meaning (philosophical question for you). BTW, if I don’t have my glasses on, any effort one takes in adding emojis is just wasted: I just see blobs of color.

So emojis ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

None of the images on this page are mine.

What’s a better prompt than this or one that you would have rather seen? Tell me in the comments.

  1. The smiling with sweat emoji usually implies discomfort but you’re still smiling. The more apt description is smiling through embarrassment!
    And with the various smiley faces, there is no actual difference except the blushing!!
    The peach emoji is butt cheeks and the eggplant is a penis. So when used in a conversation it basically implies sex!
    On your laptop, if its Windows then by clicking the windows icon and full stop/period icon simultaneously brings up the emoji bar!

  2. First, I loved the humor in your blog on emojis as I can so relate. I did not know there was a search. You are correct in Google does not interpret, and I have not found a site that does. I read the comments before writing this one. I got an education. I think I will leave the use of emojis to others.

  3. You know how I feel about these prompts, theyโ€™re becoming more mindless as this whole things rolls on. Yes, I use emojis all the time. Who doesnโ€™t. But seriously who cares which ones I use. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Does it really matter? And to write a whole post about it? ๐Ÿคฎ. And P.S. I wouldnโ€™t use the eggplant emoji as widely as you do. Unless you want to of course. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. Oh, Lord. The prompts are getting worse and worse, it seems.
    I don’t use emojis all that often. A smiley face ๐Ÿ™‚ is what I do most often. My new phone has the emoji search bar, too. It’s annoying when I type words and it suggests emojis and when I click on it, the word disappears and an emoji appears. Can’t I have BOTH?!

What's that you say? I can't quite hear you. Do you mind writing that down here? ๐Ÿ˜
