I feel so used.

Today’s weak word is “use” and its cousins “used” and “using.”

I use big words when I write blog posts.

And you make my head spin.

My blog readers need a dictionary by their side when they read my posts.


I used big words in my blog posts until my followers un-followed me.

Really? All two of them?

My intellect scared off my followers.


By using big words in my blog posts, I sound smart.

 He he he.

Big words in your blog posts makes you sound like a jerk.

“Use,” “used,” and “using” were not serial offenders in my manuscript, but when I didn’t “use” them . . . I mean, when I edited them out, the sentences packed more punch.
