Using emoticons in WordPress post categories

Now emoji has native support on almost every device around, I’ve been enjoying using them in file and folder names on my computer. ? I also use them in my task manager extensively. I find it is much quicker to digest a list of information if there is a helpful emoji included beside it.

So when it came to come up with categories for this blog, I first tried a normal list of words, but it looked too boring.

Now every category gets its own emoticon. ? I haven’t experienced any bugs or issues using them in this way. The list looks more inviting, and is easier to use.

Emojis are easy to insert anywhere you like. ? On iPhones and Android phones it is trivially simple. ? On the mac, just press Cmd+Shift+Spacebar to bring up a searchable emoji pallet. ? If you’re on a PC…well…you clearly don’t care too much about aesthetics anyways ?.
