Monday Rant: The most overused word in blogdom
Source: anothersomething.org via Yindigo on Pinterest
I am going to scream if I see or hear that word one more time.
I have already seen it written at least eight times today.
Twice in magazines and six times on other blogs.
There is now even a “Curated Insurance Blog.”
And, above, there must be two hundred random Pinterest images marked “Curated“
Why do people like that word so much?
I think it sounds pretentious at worst, and misused at best, do you agree?
I think it primarily should be used in relation to museums or exhibitions.
Not to be used for just any ol’ thing someone happens to pick out.
What about saying,
“Picked out with a sense of style”
Let’s give “curated” a rest.
Have you seen that word as much as I have?

Ha! You are too funny, Carol! P.S. Thanks for the tip on the new offerings at La Z Boy. That yellow chair you showed is great looking. You are very talented. Hand drawing is not easy for most.

I feel the same way about the word “epic”. It came from nowhere and all of a sudden everyone uses it. Drives me nuts!
