Blog challenge: Words or expressions that mean the same thing

Are you ready for another blog challenge? I hope so. 

It can be so boring, dull, tedious or dreary to repeat the same words or expressions over and over again in a blog. Your writing can sound so weak or you're driving your readers up the wall if you do so. You could use different words or synonyms or other expressions instead, though. 

Your task is to try use as many alternative words or expressions that mean the same thing as possible in a blog. 

Your blog may sound just like this:

Expector is an English enthusiast. Being an English fan or buff means he loves English. He admits he's an English addict, hobbyist or amateur, but not really such a fanatic or maniac. He doesn't think his English is already good enough, though - that's why he still keeps learning it.  

Did you notice the different words that mean the same thing:

enthusiast - fan - buff - hobbyist - amateur - addict - fanatic - maniac 

boring - dull - tedious - dreary

different - alternative - other

Now, it's your turn. Try to give a try!

Just ignore the subtle differences between the words or expressions you use, and you don't need to write something long - a short paragraph will suffice. 

P.S. We have Tara's monthly Writing Challenge, and now we also have Expector's Blog Challenge. The same thing? Yes, you got it.
