Vs. Short Blog Posts

Here’s the deal.  I see some blogs and the entries are only a few sentences long.  What’s the point of that?  If you’re going to take the time to post, you might as well say something.

So, how am I going to do it?  How will I battle short blog posts?  I’ll just make all of my posts long.

    Lost interest and couldn’t finish it… I’m sure it was good though. And why do I have a sudden urge to toss my PC and buy a Mac?

    nice! 🙂

  3. Debbi says:

    Not a wasted word. I like that! 🙂

      #4 – Right

      Tom – Thanks.

      Angelina – True.

      Redd – +

      Kestrel – Yep.

      Debbi – What an astute comment. I pride myself in not wasting words. Really the best writing doesn’t go on and on and repeat itself and waste space and fail to get to the point in a concise fashion, quite the opposite in fact, the best writing is terse, brief, short, pithy, and rarely wastes the reader’s time. So again, allow me to thank you and express my gratitude at you having noticed that I am a writer who does not waste words. Nice point, well done, I commend you.

    I sometimes wonder the same thing. If at least this one-sentenced-blog were to be so good it would distract from the absence of a paragraph – but usually this is not the case. The same goes with blog posts that only contain ONE picture – completely senseless!

  5. the long part of your post is missing. I love when that happens.
