Emoticons. Or smileys, whichever you prefer…
Who doesn’t love them?
Okay, so I’ve been a little crazy these days and I thought why not put up a crazy post… ON EMOTICONS!
Plus, they’re everywhere; texts, emails, Facebook, IMs, on plain old paper, legal documents… okay, maybe not on those YET… but it’s not long before they appear. I mean, what better way to add emotion to your expressions and confuse people?
But it can get a little stale when the same ones appear in every conversation you have… again and again and yet… again.
So, we’re getting whacky and creative with with the keyboard on Ebony Ink like we do

the geek. or the cool dude. depends on how you see it.
a cool variation on the classic and done to death =P or 😛
: o) :o( or 🙂 😦
the noses. oh so many noses. just beware they don’t look all that great on any face.
>< or >.<
this is CUTE!!!!!!!!!!
='( or 😥
the crying face. i don’t see a lot of these around these days. they’re all replaced with:
T.T or T_T
a little on the scary side but nevertheless… there are tears.
this is…. weird to say the least.it looks a little like Chicken Little, don’t you think?
the ‘you idiot.’
the ‘are you for real’
the whole… eehhhhhh thing.
*.* or *_*
ZOMBIE-FIED!! or starstruck. whichever you prefer.
-_• or >_0 or >_•
the best variations of the boooring -;)-
the ‘i can’t believe you’ eye flutter
yeah, i don’t know what it is. it’s easy though.
=S or =\
pretty standard ones… but i thought i’d throw it in there.
my personal favourite… THE MOUSTACHE MAN
and his trusty sidekick… the… uhh… THE LINE MAN!
That’s all for now… UNLESS…. unless, YOU, yes YOU have one to share? =-) (<—this is a classic example of where not to stick a nose)
As you might have noticed we’ve changed quite a bit on the blog and now we’re taking the makeover further!
We have (finally) added those sparkly new pages we said we would so check out our…
So the pages aren’t exactly filled up yet but they will be soon, so if you have a touching quote or story, some motivation, inspiration, an urge to show off something nice you did for someone even though you didn’t have to, or someone did something for you that touched your heart, leave a comment to share it with the rest of the world. =]
And just so you don’t miss out on anything make sure you Bookmark us and check back because the next 10 days at Ebony Ink are going to be filled with changes and BRAND NEW STUFF!!
If you have any comments or suggestions for us, please leave us a comment and we’ll be sure to get back as soon as we possibly can (24 hours at the most, since we may be in different time zones =])
We’ve been thinking about it a while, and now we’re finally putting it to action. We’re renovating the blog, TOTALLY so bookmark us and check back, you’ll find something a little less haphazard and a lot more fresh.
Please help us out by doing this quick poll, any suggestions/comments are much appreciated! =)
It’s only a couple of minutes but it would help us A LOT!! (sorry about the bad format. i’m not on good terms with this thing today)
For a while now we’ve (Hafsa and I) been trying to come up with something that will personalize the blog a bit more. Finally i came up with an idea that isn’t all that genius but it’ll do: sub-blogs. One for me and one for Hafsa! We just thought that this would help you to get to know us better and give us our own little space to go on and on and on about lots of things… 😉
So look out for those they’re coming VERY VERY soon, and you’ll be able to find them under the WHAT’S EBONY INK page
Added to what Alisha said, i would like to say that there is heaps of new stuff on Ebony Ink. For example, a week or so ago, i added heaps of Green Day songs on the SONGS page and not many people are viewing this. There are bits and pieces added here and there that you may like to check out like our new Star Guest Garfield! so, guys (and girls) please look around and LEAVE COMMENTS because we would love to here from you. And like Alisha said, don’t forget to check out What’s Ebony Ink About? page for our latest feature! Thanks, guys and hope you come back!
HEY GUYS! (and girls) <– I feel obliged to add that in because every time I say that at least one person finds it absolutely CRUCIAL to point out their gender or call me sexist… -.-
So, anyway, the reason I’m posting this up is because I think there isn’t a lot on the blog for you to get to know us by, and I also think you have to go through SO much stuff just to post a comment and it’s extremely frustrating…
What we did: If you look on the sidebar you’ll see that we’ve added a BRAND NEW, SUPER SHINY Meebo widget!! =D
What this means: YOU can talk to US without giving us your IM or any sort of personal details, or have to wade through the Name: (required) and Email: (required) hassles before posting up a comment. The best thing is, it’s totally private and you don’t even have to give your name away. And don’t forget that you can leave us offline messages and we’ll be sure to check them. =]
We’re hoping to hear from you, so don’t be shy, say hello!!
we have a problem! We’re out of ideas on how to improve the blog, andconsidering it’s you guys who read it, we’d like some advice on how toimprove it from YOU! What would you like us to put on that we haven‘talready, what we can add or replace, some of the cool stuff we should continue with, what needs more improvement…you catch the drift. We dedicate a lot of time and effort into the blog (even though it may not seem as though we do, buthey, we’re a couple of 15-year-olds, with tons of homework) and the blog is stillin its initial stages. And while I’m at it I might aswell add; people open up, put on your own embarrassing story in the EmbarrassingStories Page! They can’t be that bad, right? So bear in mind that it can be ANYTHING that you want to readabout, more Disney stuff, something cool new or crazy,anything at all! So PLEASE help us out, give us some ideas on what you like, coz we’d really appreciate that!
DON’T BE SHY! Drop us a comment with some much needed advice or share amoment with us that you are likely never toforget! 😀 (I’m looking forward tothose… 😉 )
btw this post will be up top for a bit so scroll down for the latest post!
