Yup, I did slip one in on you this week. "Exorbitant" was spelled correctly. Did I stump you? At least cause you to wonder about it?

So how many more stars did you get to add to your ever-growing collection this week? In place of having your name in lights, I had to keep with the whole star theme, and offer everyone a fun fireworks star! Tah-Dah!


Now, here is yesterday's Thorough Thursday post in its entirety, with the errors corrected and highlighted in red.


Original weblogs had to be manually updated through multiple sections of a common website. The creation of the majority of tools that allow authoring and maintenance of articles posted in a reverse chronological order, initiated a much easier publishing process, for a less technical, expansive population. The result was the forming of a direct class for what is known as online publishing, which has given us the blogs we see today. Obtaining blog software like WordPress, Blogger and LiveJournal are available through a number of web hosting services. This provides blinding speed and instant reaction to any concern or topic on the "global podium."

Since 2002 blogs have gained notoriety and credibility for their part in breaking, shaping and spinning news stories. It has become a way of throwing important information into the public limelight. It now, for all intent and purposes, drives mainstream media by forcing them to follow their lead. Blogging has become a priceless tool for quality communication and a way for intelligent people to provide intelligent and valuable insight, opinions and information.

In 1999 new software services like Blogger and LiveJournal were launched, making blogs much simpler to create.

Today, more than one blog is created every second and there are currently over 100,000 million blogs worldwide.


Every one of you deserves recognition, and that's why we must continue the tradition of spreading the now famous Crystal Clear Proofing HAPPY! This week you all get to put a smile on your face with this happy DANCING STAR!


Remember to live each moment, count your lucky stars, feel some HAPPY, and then spread it around!



  1. I've got 2 more stars!

    But you did make me wonder over exorbitant...

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  2. Yay, I got yesterday's and today's. Sergeant is the one I had to think about. I don't usually misspell it but looking at it misspelled made me pause.

  3. Passed all tests with flying colors. Although I must say (with a hearty "darn you") - I was stumped on exorbitant - I was like, WTF? I KNOW that's the right spelling ... so I peeked, but only AFTER going over all the others in my head first.

    Scouts Honor! ;)

    The Old Silly

  4. I missed yesterday's, but I got 9 right today and the bonus. And yes, you stumped me with #9!
