  1. Without doubt, I subscribe to your quality/goal. For this writer, it is always about depth and substance. I will create time to read posts up to 600 words because they often reflect considerable thought/research/meaning. Yes, some writers are gifted at sharing and expressing in fewer words (as you do well, Colleen). I am not. Ergo, my lengthier posts. I’ve always felt that if I wanted cursory exchanges, I’d be on Facebook or Twitter. πŸ™‚


  2. I hear you. My chats are sometimes long, my poetry shorter (thankfully) time is the issue, following and commenting takes hard work. I’m a bit late in responding, but I keep the blogs I follow to comment when I have time! Good idea Coll. Hugs x


  3. oh oh! I love short reads but somehow I want to pour out articles, I need a journalist’s job and then I would not have time to write long blogs! Oh well, skip to where I end it, is how I am happy to have people read my first line and last one,it usually adds up!


    • Hahahahaha! I can’t skip! But sometimes I read fast and end up having to reread it! πŸ˜‰ Not just yours but everyones.

      I think that the writing it’s self is what should be valued, not the length of it. πŸ™‚ I just hope WP thinks so too. πŸ™‚


  4. It’s a sign of good editing skills to say more with less. We could all stand to improve. I rarely go beyond 550 words because I know that people just can’t read more than that. I think we are all rather overwhelmed! It takes me much more time to pare down to 550 words than it does to write the original 1,000. I could post more often if I used more words. LOL…it’s the editing that kills me. πŸ™‚ Let’s see if WP listens!
