Word of the Day: Actionate

ac·tion·ate [ak-shuhn-nit]

  1. A passion to act, driven by strong emotion, that is often considered by your more cerebral and dis-actionate kin to be extremely foolhardy.
  2. A characteristic assigned to saints, sinners, some bloggers and most entrepreneurs.

Usage: “Though many people express the desire when going through the blog action day sign-up list, most were not quite as actionate as they might have proclaimed.”

In honor and respect of those who boned it up and wrote some great articles. A few of our favorites:
