best and worst writing advice, I got some advice about my blog. I don't know if it is good advice or not, so I'm going to try it out and see what happens.
Blog Advice: Shorter is better. Try to keep your posts to 500 words or less.
This makes sense to me. In fact, when I read through blogs I skim posts that look too dense, or I read the first paragraph and move on. I took a good, long look at my posts and realized I'd probably skim or skip them, too.
Goal: For the next several weeks, I will be brief but not shallow.
What is your favorite post length? When do you start skimming?
