Blog Tip - Adding emoticons to Blogger

Oh my Gosh. How many of these will I add ? :) ;) :D  =))
Ok - I better stop getting carried away.
I was asked this question. And as I keep saying - I google it. I wanted to add smileys so I googled - adding emoticons to blogger. Many of the sites suggested to add monkey something - ha ha  as if I am not monkeying around with my html enough ( Ok before I am inundated with all of you smart helpful people's email  - that is greasemonkey :) and you need firefox for that but I use google chrome - god knows why) but one of them added just a javascript to the code and I can type the symbols - a colon followed by a bracket and it will automatically convert that to this :) . (that's why I spelled the word for if I type it will become a smiley)
And the link is (actually there are many out there but the one I used for no better reason than it popped up first on google search) is

This is not a recommendation at all. Do all HTML code hacking  using your own judgement in assessing the risk please. I am a beginner blogger and have a long way to go before I consider myself even an average knowledgeable person in this field. I just was asked and have provided the answer.

oops forgot to add so edited . I do keep editing as somehow I can only see better after publishing it and since my laptop is old and missing some keys ( I need to get a new one but only next year - would you believe I have taped one key as the top is completely missing?) and skipping some more letters I do come back & edit as wrong spelling and incorrect grammar bother me.
Any way - you all can also add emoticons in my comments by using the shortcut keywords found at that site - basically all these are yahoo emoticons keyword shortcuts

Whenever I see the little guy laying on the floor laughing I want to take him home! He is soooo cute. TFS.

Pam, I don't tell you often enough but your blog is so great and so incredibly helpful. I really appreciate the time you take to keep us all out of trouble.

I was doing my editing on the fly as well. Then, I created another blog just for editing. I create my post, add my pictures do all my fiddling, publish, look at it again and fix it then "select all", copy and paste it to a new post in my regular blog. The key to it is to make sure when you set up the editing blog you click the box that says no one can see it but you! Hope that makes your life with the missing keys easier.

Thanks again and hugs to you, eileen

Dear Pam...I "GOOGLED" for the emoticons too, many-many times but my "ANTIVIRUS WARNING WINDOWS" keep popping on every emoticon site I open. I thought to ask you since I see you use them too.
I hope you do not get...and I am quoting the following statement from your reply/post:::"Ok before I am ""inundated"" with all of you smart helpful people's email". You are too Funny, Hugs and Have a great day!!! I will try your suggestion :)
