I was recently reading a post on wordpress about self improvement. It had great information in it but it took so long to read and there was so much unnecessary information that I just stopped reading the post.
This made me think, is it more valuable to write a long blog post to impress people or a short valuable one to get right down to the facts and give people a short read.
I think that if you write a post of less than 300 words and then edit it, and take out all of the unnecessary information, than you will have a valuable post for many readers.
Not many people want to read a post for more than 5-10 minutes so if you have a post that is valuable to them and it is short, they will probably come back to your website for more. More long term viewers = more views and more motivation to write. 🙂
