I don’t know about the rest of you blog readers, but when I’m blog-hopping from favorite to favorite, I tend to skip the long blogs so I can cover more ground, visit more bloggers, and leave more comments. My intentions are good. I always make a note of the longer blogs so I can go back and read them later. The trouble is, I do a lot of “stuff” and time has a way of shrinking faster than my To Do List. Sometimes I return to the blog, and sometimes I don’t.
So why on earth did I make yesterday’s blog so long? Isn’t it safe to assume long blogs affect other readers the same way? The truth? I wrote about something I care about and the words tumbled out through my fingers to the keyboard. The next thing I knew, I had enough material for three blogs. Should have thought of that before I hit Publish. I could have been two days ahead on the Blog-a-Day Challenge for the blogbooktour online class.
Here’s my question for today’s readers: How do you feel about short blogs versus long blogs when you are reading for fun and information?
