I also found a fabulous website "favoritewords.com" that connect people using their favourite words.  Now how fun is that.  You can make a list of your favourite words and use it as a word journal.  I love it and yes, I did sign up, immediately. The website is FREE and there is also a mobile app.   Here is a blurb directly from their site:  

"There are millions of words in many different languages that we all deal with throughout out lives from our childhoods until our last-days.  Some of these words stand out by giving us positive thoughts and emotions. They may represent a favourite object or activity, mean something special to us, or simply sound awesome. They are our favourite words.

At FavouriteWords.com, we offer a fun and safe way to take all those words that you like for whatever reason and put them on a list, which you can access and edit anytime and from anywhere.

Favorite Words is really as simple as it gets, yet the experience it brings is simply beyond compare. All you have to do is think of your favourite words and add them to your list.  As long as the words ring a bell inside you, they're good to go....

But it doesn't stop there.  Aside from acting as a sort of a diary, a creativity booster, or a mood-lifter, it also acts as a social coach of sorts because Favourite Words actually connects you to like-minded people all over the world.  The app looks for people who have words in common with you hence the connection isn't just random.
