Today I tuned into Seth’s blog and saw a big scary post.
The problem with long posts is that they are well written – that’s fine, but the problem is that they take so much time to read. Most posts should be like 100-300 words, then it’s fine to read.
Big and scary is what google wants. But short is way better. I liked Seth for his short posts, but now they sometimes get a bit big and scary.
I started blogging because I didn’t see web logs like mine – short musings about reality.
If you can’t pack your knowledge in few paragraphs, then you should think about writing that scary post.
Short and sweat and big and scary. As far as I looked I never really read big posts. I just skim through them.
