The main purpose of my blog was to write about aspects of my life and life in general in the most simplified way possible.
As I go back to reading my posts, I notice that many are just downright too long! To me, personally, I think that’s great! There was a lot of thought and meaning put into those posts but were they actually simplified versions of anything? It doesn’t matter because keeping things simple all the time means keeping things boring and I’m not about the boring life. Plus there are many aspects of life that can’t be simplified in under 3 paragraphs.
I would like to shorten up most of my posts though because I, myself, have a very short attention span not just because we live in an instant gratification era but because I’ve always resonated with the Type A Personality of impatience.
Very long books, such as Stephen King’s The Stand, is way too long for me, regardless of how interesting it is. In fact, I’m sure it’s too long for most people. It’s very interesting but I never finished it only because I don’t have the attention span for it. And because I realize that, I don’t want my blog posts to have that kind of “this is interesting but way too long” kind of flavor in it. This is just how I feel.
However, I’m more interested in how others feel. So what is your opinion on long vs shorter blog posts?
