Balance

I've come to realize that my vocabulary for criticism is far greater than my vocabulary for praise. I can write pages on why I don't like something, but when I encounter something I do like, I only seem to be able to cough up words like "great", "cool" and "wonderful".
I'm going to try to make it a point to find things to praise more often. I guess I just assume that if it's praise-worthy that everyone already realizes it and what's the point? But that's not right.
Just as people need or want to be warned about what's wrong with something, they also enjoy hearing about the positive. Maybe even more so.
So what is the opposite of a rant? Gushing?
I'm gonna try to gush a little more.
