Have you ever happened upon a blog post that seemed interesting to begin with but seemed to drag on and on and on?
Sure you have!
Are you one of those people who tends to become long winded when writing?
One technique I’ve had to develop over time – with lots of practice is to write my post, edit, edit, condense, walk away, come back and edit some more. I try to get those posts down to the bare bones.
Blog readers tend to have a very short attention span and if you read a lot of blogs, you know precisely what I’m talking about.
Longer posts aren’t always better posts!
Keeping it short, sweet and to the point will please your readers more in the long run because it shows you value their time.
So tell me, which kind of writer are you? Windy or to the point? And what is your position on long post versus short post?
