If you read Quora you will already know this. But for others, I would like to share what I found so interesting; only after you tell me what is your view on this.

Aw Tim, don't be so humble. I read your articles with great pleasure, and your rating tells you that there are many others who do too. It is a matter of balancing the output. Where is the happy medium. You do better than I, because you edit and vet.
Something I noticed is the size of my vocabulary has shrunk. In the past four years I have not read books, only read online articles, and social life is less than before. So, my vocabulary has narrowed, so words don't dance with me like they use to.
Might come in use if you plan to do a page on either Old French or English nobility. The word is still in use in court (royalty) circles here in the UK. The Prince of Wales has an equerry (aka: aide de camp)
Yes, original intent is always a good option. What if, like many other words, we applied its meaning in a different way, for instance to an inanimate object as in "Her equerry does a great job but she is considering switching to an iPhone 7." ;)
A master of words indeed. Alan Robert Lancaster, it is such a pleasure to read your answer.
As Antariksh Bothale [writer of the article I read in Quora] say, it is good to vary short/long words, short/long sentences. It is all a matter of balance and IF you are a master like he is, you can have fun with it all. You write very well V M .
