Good suggestions! One question about the first tip: I often intentionally bend a little flat to sound sadder or sharp to sound perkier. I do generally aim for the dead-on note to end a line or to bend a double-stop to a unison note. But inside a single-note phrase, I kind of enjoy pushing and pulling to those in-between places. Seems to sweeten things a bit and make the tune sound more conversational, more voice-like. 
Of course, it's bad to bend off-key accidentally. (I've been know to  do that too!) But what about intentionally? I'm sure I've heard a wide range of blues and blues-influenced players do that - Chuck Berry, B.B. King, Jerry Garcia, Robert Johnson, Gary Davis....
Is it my imagination?
