How to Add Assorted Smiley Faces to Your WordPress Blog or Comments

I keep forgetting where I saved this keyboard shortcuts, and and yet know only 🙂 🙂 :)> so I reblogged this post, hoping to find it easier, when I need it! Thanks Sharechairs! 😀


Screen shot 2013-03-06 at 7.22.22 PMWhen commenting on a WordPress blog, you can enhance your words with smiley faces. As I read through comments, I see the ‘typical’ smiley face used a lot. But did you know that you can ALSO add lots of other expressive faces to punctuate your comment? 😯

Here are SOME of the codes that you can use to add a variety of faces to your words. I’m putting the actual code in quotes, but when you use it, don’t use the quotes. (if I didn’t use the quotes for this post, they would simply show up as the smiley faces themselves). Also, when writing, remember to leave a space between your words and the codes.

Feel free to try these out in the comment section of this post.

🙂 This is the typical smiley face made by typing: “:)” or “:-)” or “:smile:”

😀 Grinning face: “:D” or “:-D”…

John Conlee-Rose Colored Glasses(With Lyrics)

Quotation: Lucy Maud Montgomery on roses (the think is the rose smell the same to the Persians, Greek, Latins, French, and so on)

I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I’ve never been able to believe it. I don’t believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk cabbage.

Today’s Birthday: SAINT CATHERINE LABOURÉ (1806)

Medal of Mary

Saint Catherine Labouré (1806)

Shortly after Labouré joined the Daughters of Charity, a religious order devoted to serving the poor, she reportedly began having visions of the Virgin Mary. In one, she was shown the design for what has come to be known as the Miraculous Medal, now worn by Christians the world over. Her role in the medal’s creation was concealed until after her death, so she lived out her life in relative obscurity. In 1947, she was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. What invocation appears on the medal? More…Discuss

For three times in 1830 Our Lady appeared to Catherine Labouré, 24 year old novice of Daughters of Charity in Paris. During second apparition Virgin Mary showed Catherine the medal she wanted to be struck. We know it as Miraculous Medal. Here is the short presentation of the life of Saint Catherine Labouré, Daughter of Charity whom Virgin Mary revealed such gracious gift. (the film is courtesy of Sr. Patricia Evanick DC).

W trakcie drugiego objawienia przekazała Katarzynie wizerunek medalu, który Matka Boża chciała aby został wybity. Medal ten znamy jako Cudowny Medalik. Prezentacja obecnie tylko w języku angielskim.

This Day in the Yesteryear: “NESSIE” REPORTED FOR THE FIRST TIME (1933)

“Nessie” Reported for the First Time (1933)

More than 700 ft (213 m) deep, Loch Ness is the largest freshwater lake in the UK by volume. This makes it the perfect hiding place for a prehistoric creature—or so believers say. Though the legend of the Loch Ness Monster dates back to at least 565 BCE, modern accounts of “Nessie” date only to 1933, the year a local newspaper began reporting sightings of a fearsome, dragon-like creature in the lake. What natural phenomenon, known as a seiche, may be responsible for some of the sightings? More… Discuss

STUDY LINKS COLIC WITH LATER MIGRAINES (so….there you have it: there is a study done for everything!)

Study Links Colic with Later Migraines

Some people may be genetically predisposed tomigraines, and colic may be an indicator of this. Research shows that many children with migraines were colicky babies and that mothers who suffer from migraines themselves are more likely to have babies with colic. Further investigation is needed before it can be conclusively said that these two conditions are linked, but if this is proved to be the case, it could mean that their underlying causes and triggers are related and that strategies for preventing or treating migraines could be helpful in treating colic. More…Discuss

My take on this: “I think that there is more realistic evidence that migraines are a result of politico-economico-social stress, than colics as an infant!

I think that waking up to a nightmarish future, can definitely gives many migraines and I don’t need any study to know that to be true!”
