Absolutely 100% true. I am baffled by the number of people that think every site is right for them. It's the whole 'everyone else says I need it, so I must need it' thought process. If more people focused on just a couple networks and doing them REALLY well, we'd all be in a better place.

@jennykaypollock Faux pas is an easy one. Myriad slightly more difficult, but doable. and abhor? Well that's just a smart idea :)

@Faryna I have not, no.
@sharongreenthal @BruceSallan WOW! I never noticed that...now, it's so obvious! ;)
@BruceSallan Other than the fact that most people wouldn't know how to pronounce it after just reading it? ;) No idea Bruce...what is it?
@Steve Birkett Apropos is one of those words that makes a normal situation amazing, when used correctly. Verklempt...well, that one came from my mom, and is one of the most incredible words I know.
@BradShorr Potentially... ;)
Facetious can definitely feel heavier when used in conjunction with different words. But it also changes meaning with the connotation used in the speakers voice.
@MichaelLamerique I use apropos way to often. And facetious is my favorite word EVER.
@MichaelLamerique Which don't you use?
The misuse of there, their and they're is my biggest pet peeve!

I read because books give me the chance to escape into another world, from the comfort of my couch :) Plus, I have a slight addiction to words.

I check mine every night - I use an exchange service that sends me an email at 9pm every evening with the sender, title and time of every spam email I received during the last 24 hours. I can then select the email as a safe sender if something slips through the crack. I usually catch something at least twice a week since I have very strong spam filters on. I think it's imperative to check your spam folder - email systems are definitely not fool proof.

The small amount of users who are utilizing pinterest in a way that is unfair to the original creator is small. The benefits of leaving your site open for pinning are so much more than the pitfalls. I am a firm believer that all sites should be open for pinning. Especially because the true credit can always be found with a little digging :)

I'd love to write an anonymous blog - but I always have the fear that somehow, people would figure out who I am and then I would be in serious trouble ;)

I try and do this every day - I take my greyhound for his after lunch walk (he comes to the office with me) and we walk around for about 20 minutes. It is just so darn calming :)

I'm on the fence with it too. I check mine every so often, but don't place too much stock in it. I see the big problems it has had, and the ones that it needs to fix, but I also see the benefit of keeping myself on there for those who do want to use it. It's not hurting me to have a profile, so I see no reason to remove it.

Wow, thanks for the awesome mention! I am a firm believer in consistency, however I have learned recently that consistent doesn't have to be 5 times per week. Recently, I became the Social Marketing Director for an Agency, so I added their blog to my weekly writing schedule. Which means my own blog had to take a bit of a back seat. While I still write consistently 2 days a week there, it's definitely less than I used to. My advice? Write as much as you can while keeping the content still awesome!
